why? Even though I've heard that it's possible to accomplish that, I'd say
you'd be better off if you decide yourself for one of those two options.

Me neither. Perhaps SASL falls back to using auxprop if saslauthd isn't
running? AFAIK you can get what you want by specifying the following line:
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd auxprop
Note that you need to specify the authentication mechanism for saslauthd on
the command line. "saslauthd -v" tells you which ones are available.
The relevant doc file is install_auth.html in the doc/ directory.
