I think an elisp implementation of GSSAPI is unrealistic.

gssapi.el uses

(defcustom gssapi-program (list
                           (concat "gsasl %s %p "
                                   "--mechanism GSSAPI "
                                   "--authentication-id %l")
                           "imtest -m gssapi -u %l -p %p %s")

I would guess that reusing gassapi.el for the new nnimap.el would be the
easiest.  It's a matter of getting nnimap.el to recognising that GSSAPI
should be used, I think.
