      Description

      Hadoop uses Kerberos as it's end-to-end authentication system. It would be useful if Hue could support authentication with Kerberos credentials. SPNEGO over HTTP (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4559) is just such a mechanism and is already available standard in many of the Hadoop web interfaces.
