  I know that you are still testing but don't forget to remove your
  "message" statements in nnimap.el -- it prints out passwords.

You are right indeed that there's a lot of debug messages there. They will be removed of course. 

  Also. can you consider handling the error when either module support
  is not enabled or the emacs-gssapi module is unavailable?

Good point. Perhaps it would make sense to let the authenticator parameter be a list, and have the function try them all in order? 

Bonus points if the authenicator falls back to using the "gsasl" or
  "imtest" program, if configured:

I don't know. The reason I started all of this was because I could never get gsasl to work properly, so even if I do it I wouldn't be able to test it.

That said, patch does not change any existing behaviour so if gsasl works for you right now, nothing will change.
