No Simon.

I believe Aleksandar is talking about AuxProp: LDAP-DB. AFAIK, AuxProp can have
3 backends: SASL-DB, SQL (MySQL and PgSQL) and LDAP-DB. He is trying to cut out
SASLAuthD from the picture.

This is basically a good move, since it will enable even CRAM-MD5 and
DIGEST-MD5 against MS Active Directory. Is that what you're after, Alex? We
will be introducing an IMAP4 server into our intranet, soon. Of course, GSSAPI
will be on the top of my list, but even (PLAIN+SSL) or CRAM-MD5 -> AuxProp ->
LDAP -> ADS sounds fine.
