There is no transition strategy in the OpenSSH code, nor do I think there 
should be one. 

I will probably provide _for this release only_ patches which allow sites 
to enable 'gssapi' authentication for backwards compatibility. Those sites 
will generally have been using my patches anyway, so I don't see any 
problem with this existing outside the main code base.
