Interestingly enough, these are the two applications that I targetted
when I implemented the GSSAPI mechanism for Jabber, so it's good to know
that the multi-round trip changes I made then extend to mechanisms with
even more round trips. The sad state of the Jabber world at that point
was that most vendors (both client and server) purely implemented
DIGEST-MD5, with no attempt at a flexible SASL loop.

At that point, I also produced support for doing multi-trip
authentication in Psi, but I have no idea whether it was every merged.
Many of the Jabber servers do now do GSSAPI, but the only ones I've got
real knowledge of are implemented in Java, so I suspect things won't
just plug and play with them.
