Well, I think it is a useful patch, as we move to using libads for our
passdb code.  SASL allows the client to chose which mechanism to use
first, doesn't it?  This should allow us to express a preference order
in the SASL table, and therefore allow this...  (possibly enabled by
this flag - indeed we could do PLAIN SASL the same way...)
