Considering how long the SASL task has been on the TODO list, I think
you overestimate the number of people willing to step up and do that
work if they aren't getting paid for it.

If I recall correctly, ra_serf was slightly different, code and
configure glue showed up at about the same time. Regardless, I think
I've stated my opinion, I don't think we should be adding configure
glue for libraries that aren't actually used. Apparently other people
disagree. Hopefully Vlad will come up with some actual code in the
near future making this arguement pointless.
