This was half a year ago, so please apologize my impatience....

What are the further plans with this module?  It isn't on CPAN until now
(or at least, I've been unable to find it).  Recent Win2003 domain
controllers don't work with Auth::NTLM::HTTP in its current state, so
GSSAPI/Kerberos might be an interesting alternative for cross-platform
(both Apache/IE and IIS/Firefox) authentication.
