I agree; I think we ought to change the jgss values to what Sun uses,
even though they are incorrect.  When we hook this up to a real
kerberos implementation, we can translate the constants at the native
boundary -- ugly but workable.

One thing we could do in situations like this is add a new annotation,
and modify free compilers to recognize it, to warn people about the
use of odd APIs.  That is, a use of one of these constants would emit
an optional warning like "note that these aren't the same as the RFC".
