Sorry.  XMPP 1.0/SASL.  If your server implements both SASL and iq/auth, you
should be able to use iq/auth if you like.  I'll probably be implementing
that in the telnet client upon occasion, anyway. :)

There really ought to be a stream:feature for it though....

Let's say it's confusing at best.  I'd like to be able to have a client
implement plaintext if they want to over SSL/TLS, without violating a SHOULD
