Whilst that might be an interesting idea for the future, I support
Vlad's scoping of his SoC proposal to getting good SASL support working
with just one specific SASL library implementation (Cyrus).

Glancing briefly at postfix, it looks like they are using a custom
reimplementation of code to talk to the dovecot auth daemon. Whilst the
Dovecot SASL implementation does, as far as I'm aware, have a reputation
for quality, it is still undergoing the process of transitioning from an
integral part of dovecot itself, to a deliberately re-usable library. As
such, I think we should definitely devote attention to it, but it
doesn't seem like an ideal basis on which to build our initial SASL
