The document below specify two new GSS-API interfaces which are useful
when implementing SASL GS2.  The interfaces have been implemented in
both GNU GSS and Heimdal's GSS-API library for several years, but with
slightly different semantics.  I'm going to align GNU GSS's semantics to
Heimdal, which is what the document describes.

Thoughts, comments and criticisms are invited.

What would be the best way to advance this document?  I'm not sure it is
in scope for KITTEN (or SASL).
