Subject Re: [mina] ProtocolHandler interface

The only way you are going to know if this is right yourself is to do 
the integration of LDAP and Kerberos yourself.  Start with LDAP since 
its protocol provider is mature.  Do it in a private Eve branch if you like.

Personally I'd love new nework layer implementors do this as an 
exercise.  The exercise will let you see the use cases central to these 
servers.  It will spare us lots of emails trying to convince each other 
of the right thing to do when by doing the exercise you simply see what 
needs to be done.
