I don't mind having it among the auth type bits. It would be similar to the
the 'CURLAUTH_ONLY' bit we have for HTTP which serves the purpose of allowing
an app to have libcurl "prope" for authentication but still only accept/use a
single specific authentication type.

I think adding it among the bits is better than having it as a completely
separate option.

But also, as Steve brought up, we're in feature freeze right now and even if
it isn't a rule we can ignore at times I think we first need to consider it
carefully first if it really needs to go in now. We do have these feature
freeze periods in order to "settle" and iron out bugs. Of course we can still
work on patches and discuss how to do things for inclusion after the next
