I'm just wondering (I don't have time to try doing this), but are you
sure this is even possible with a regular nginx module? I'm not sure
there exists a GSS asynchronous API. GSS calls can block on network
communication (to e.g. contact the KDC) afaik, which would totally kill
nginx processing.

If that is indeed the case, you may be better off first getting FastCGI
authorizer support or something.
