Quoth "Ragavan S" <jabber_dev at hotmail.com>:
| Another interest is to see if and how Kerberos fits in. The concept of 
| sessions can be pretty pertinent to communications and this might be an  
| area for something like kerberos to come in.

For what it's worth, when I looked at it a year or so ago, it was
easy enough to support Kerberos 5 authentication in the server.
Clients probably likewise, but I was unable to find enough buildable
source to see.  That's direct clients - web clients will be limited
to whatever the web browser supports.
