      Description

      Make GSSName implement Principal (add getName()).

      Without this a GSSName backed by the native C GSS-API library cannot be used with JAAS.

      Note that GSS name objects conceptually *are* principals. The base RFCs, 2743 and 2744, both refer to them as such.

      A GSSName is notionally no different that a Krb5Principal, except as to implementation details.
