Agreed - I would rather fix Mulberry to be consistent with the other 
authenticators we support that do use 'imap' rather than 'imsp'. However, 
if a change to the server were to be made, perhaps it could be set to 
accept either 'imap' or 'imsp'? Or would that be too hard to do within the 
constraints of SASL lib?
