Name forms

There are two name representations in GSS-API: Internal form and Contiguous string ('flat') form. Functions gss_export_name() and gss_import_name() can be used to convert between the two forms.

Describe relationship between import_name, canonicalize_name, export_name and friends. Also, update for RFC2743 language ('contiguous' and 'flat' are gone, leaving just 'exported name token', 'internal', and 'MN').
