CIFS Authentication

I'm looking at ways to integrate Alfresco into an environment which may involve various other applications and sources of user information.

NTLM authentication is a problem because it always requires an MD4 hash which is not available in (or recoverable from) the main system against which I would like to authenticate.

M$ supports Kerberos as an alternative to NTLM for CIFS authentication: does the CIFS implementation used in Alfresco also support Kerberos?  In this case it might just about be possible to use my user database as a back-end and wrap it in something that will support Kerberos; otherwise these users will either need another username & password or else will not have CIFS access.
