Right. Instead of just fixing Evo to do NTLM v2 for itself, we should
fix it to delegate to ntlm_auth which fixes the problem *properly*.

There ought to be a library which handles it all for you automatically —
trying /usr/bin/ntlm_auth if it's available, or falling back to doing
NTLM (including v2) for itself.

I'd previously thought that doing such a library wouldn't be sensible,
since for communicating with ntlm_auth and polling on its sockets it
would need to integrate with the application's main loop, which is
non-trivial. Such a library wouldn't be usable in Chrome, Firefox, and
other arbitrary apps with their own main loop structure.

But maybe it makes sense to do one which works with a glib main loop,
which would be used in all glib-based code.
