description="""
OpenLDAP already has a SASL back-end for CYRUS-SASL.  
In NetBSD, we have our own SASL-C library which has similar functionality and can be used in OpenLDAP instead of CYRUS.  
Base postfix already does this.

There is a cyrus.c file where all the work is done.  
We can make a saslc.c one that uses our library.  
This will allow different authentication schemes to be used for the client programs (so we will be able to run ldapsearch against an Active Directory server using GSSAPI.
