Yes. I guess because there are so many guide/howto have written like
that. From http://www.postfix.org/docs.html, there are 8 howtos. One
with a broken link, one doesn't use sasl for smtpd, five are for
saslauthd and only one for auxprop. Beside, there are so many admins
out there forbid store cleartext password no matter what. So yeah,
above route is the only route for them to go unless they patch.
Don't you think it is complicated compare to
auxprop -> mysql ?
BTW, pam_mysql users should upgrade
