Wait ... can you clarify?  I wrote a LoginModule once but I think it
was just to get out of having to use the JDK's configuration system
(conf files, properties ...).  I realized just now that maybe you
meant writing an entire Kerberos client that didn't rely on underlying
com.sun classes.  In which case, we've talked about doing that for a
long time, most notably so we could support OTP's, IDfusion,
authorization payload, smart cards, or modern configuration
mechanisms.  As with our other server protocols, we have a lot of the
guts to do a client library.

Is a Kerberos client implementation what you asking for?
