Yes but that's not a problem. The generation can be done OUTSIDE of 
Cyrus SASL v2. We are running a User Identity Database which generates 
the appropriate SASL settings for email roaming users for PLAIN and 
DIGEST-MD5. No cleartext passwords in the database.

Generation is not necessary in the sasl library, usage is enough, 
because it is well defined how these values have to be computed (see my 
other posting).
