This looks good. I'm wondering though: I'm not too familiar with
SASL, but is it easy to set up non-global SASL configurations? Having
to run stuff as root and/or introduce fake users into a system
database during tests seems non-ideal. Could we possibly make
ENABLE_SASL=true automatically make a SASL configuration for you?
(I'm happy to do the legwork if you can point me at the appropriate
SASL commands and/or flags.)

(As a random code review note: shouldn't enable_sasl just be set to
True instead of 1? I guess the other options aren't doing that, but
it still seems better.)
