If I could find it in a GUI LDAP browser/client, I 
would definitely use the GSSAPI SASL mechanism in 
performing both administrator and regular user binds 
to my server right now.  I can certainly see myself 
using other mechanisms in the future if they were 
available, but I've tried every single GUI LDAP client 
that I can find (GQ, JXplorer, and probably 5 or 6 
others whose names don't come to mind right now), and 
none of them support it.

Thanks for asking.
