Unfortunately no. I don't have an SASL setup myself, my advise was
based mostly on reading the code.

I hope someone more familiar with SASL could comment.

But if after scanning the usual places (book, archives, SASL docs) you
haven't managed to get SASL + anonymous access to interact properly, I'm
fine with recording an issue for this. (It might turn out to be
a documentation issue, but that's still a bug.)

Please link to this thread from the issue.
