We consider moving to jabberd 2 in the near future. Problem : we are
using mod_auth_crypt for authentification, so we don't have plaintext

We thought of two roadmaps :
(1) Enable mod_auth_(digest|plain) and ask every user to change his
password. This sucks, because some clients (Gossip) don't allow the user
to change his password.

(2) Enable mod_auth_(digest|plain), and hack mod_auth_crypt so the
plaintext password gets added to the XDB. Later, it can be used by

Here is a patch :
It passed all my regression tests (that is, it is running for more than
5 minutes on our server).

Have fun.
