Ah right, make sense.

Well, since I'm maintaining cyrus-imapd rpms and I didn't want to maintain
my own set of cyrus-sasl rpms. I do it for the older RedHat versions but
wanted to stop it because the newer versions include SASL v2. So, I
thought if it's just a small problem in 2.2.1-BETA, it was better to fix
it there and make it compatible with cyrus-sasl >= 2.1.7 again.
