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...

[1] http://starship.python.net/crew/fdrake/manuals/krb5py/krb5py.html
     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.

[3] http://pygss.sourceforge.net/
     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!
