Kerberos authentication w/ Python on Windows

After a bit of searching I haven't been able to find a definite resource 
for Kerberos authentication from Python.  Any help would be appreciated. 
  Here's what I've found...

     This looks all well and good, but the 'original software package' 
referenced here doesn't work, and as far as I can tell, doesn't even 
seem to exist (and I do have Handler).

[2] The best I could find in Zope appears to just get its result from 
the UNIX/Linux krb5 command, which does all the heavy lifting.  This is 
not available on Windows.

     I can't really tell if this is what I'm looking for.  It does 
provide a way to interface with MIT's krb5, but it must be obtained 
separately and compiled...

Thanks in advance for any help!
