Appreciate that.

OK. I was thinking. (perhaps too much. ) That it would be cool to 
auth using kerberos. But require as well for the SSL end of the 
equation the proper client certs. That way I had envisioned a 
client would..
present their proper client cert or be punted.. Saves a little on
establishing sessions that will never be around very long.
(if ok they would have their encrypted SSL session to heimdal over.)
even before they had actually authenticated to the REALM.  
This has been done already right? OR this is what the RFC is about.
In that case are their any stubs around?
