I'm looking for possibilities to extend various ioslaves (SMTP, POP3 and
IMAP) to allow using more SASL mechanisms (KERBEROS-GSSAPI is my primary
target). The current KSASL class is not enough to achive this goal, I
found 2 possible methods for extending the ioslaves:
1. Use the cyrus-sasl package directly, maybe creating a C++ wrapper
around it (and call it KSASL2 or something similar)
2. Use (QCA http://delta.affinix.com/qca/).
Any opinions on which would be the better solution? QCA's SASL plugin
also uses cyrus-sasl, so is it worth not to use it directly? My primary
concern about QCA that it seems to not being maintained.
