Actually, Sam has publicly stated numerous times that some of his code
is non-compliant because he doesn't agree with the spec, and therefore
won't change it. AFAIK, he has never taken part in any working group
discussion on IMAP, which is where he should address these issues.
Violating a spec after its been written, isn't the way to go about
voicing your complaints.

Cyrus, and no other decent software package that I know of, still
_depends_ on SASL v1.5.x. AFAIK, development of this version has
stopped, although there have been bugfixes in CVS.

Nope, I use Sendmail. I don't understand why people have such a hard
time setting up SASL. If you use either sasldb2 or saslauthd, its
trivial. If you use MySQL or LDAP (which I've never tried), it gets a
little more complicated.
