Taking Basic auth scheme and sending its credentials format to Kerbros
scheme helper -> FAIL.

Taking a Basic auth format username and looking up Kerberos groups with it.
   could work, but Basic auth usernames do not normally have the @DOMAIN
syntax part. You will need to check users are logging in with that and
its not being stripped away anywhere.

Kerberos is designed to operate without a popup. Move the computer
outside the domain and is might work only with popups. Or it might not.

They are completely separate operations.

external_acl_type (group lookup) does authorization. Taking the username
and checking groups. username can come from any authentication type, or
even be non-authenticated. The only thing that matters is whether the
username presented by Squid to the helper is of a format which matches
somethign in the groups database.
