Judging from what Jeremy White said, it's needed to fully support
Outlook 2003 talking to an Exchange server.

I think the interesting part about this is that getting Wine to use
GENSEC will be a step to making more linux based apps zero in on that
library when they need to do windows auth things. I think this is
preferable to every developer reinventing the wheel every time.

But I guess you are right, this doesn't really concern the end user,
whereas "Can I run my game" does, pretty much.
