PuTTY, GSSAPI... and a CONNECT proxy

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

    As I understand it, PuTTY supports GSSAPI (as in: Kerberos)
    authentication when connecting to a remote SSH server for quite
    some time [1].  Now, my setup is that the remote can only be
    reached via an HTTP (CONNECT) proxy, and /that proxy/ in turn
    requires GSSAPI authentication, which PuTTY seems to lack [2].

    I wonder if there’s a chance that the support for the latter is
    implemented anytime soon?  (Alternatively, that same proxy
    supports the proprietary NTLM protocol, but I presume
    implementing it would require considerably more work [3].)
