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.
