Subject: WIN32 SOCKET != int in krb5 lib
The sendauth/recvauth interfaces (and lower-level routines like krb5_write_message) take a
krb5_pointer argument that's handled as int* internally to find the file descriptor.

1) For Windows, we should be using SOCKET* probably. (Cf. ticket 6041.)
2) We might want to update the published prototypes to use pointers to real types; the fd
handle shouldn't be opaque in this interface.

#1 would presumably be an ABI change on 64-bit Windows, but the current version may well be
unusable, I'm not sure...
