Could we take a 'wait and see' approach here? It's easier to commit
patches directly to trunk, and as long as these incremental patches
work, I don't see any reason why they'll cause any harm. If Vlad does
get hit by a bus, I'm sure there are lots of other people who would be
willing to step up and finish the SASL support.

We took this same approach for ra_serf (i.e. work directly on trunk)
and it turned out quite well for us. I think that extra exposure,
review and testing of the SASL patches can only be good for our SASL
support.

Cheers,

David
