First, I'd strongly suggest that you upgrade to a recent version of
Cyrus, either 2.1.16 or 2.2.3. To do this, you'll need a recent version
of SASL (I'd suggest 2.1.17). Then, you just configure Cyrus/SASL to
authentication plaintext from /etc/shadow and have it autotransition
passwords into the SQL auxprop plugin.
