Well, believe it or not there aren't that many SASL libraries out there 
in any other language -- only one I know of is only available for C. 
This means that most people who want to support SASL in their Jabber 
clients will have to roll their own SASL libs. Admittedly, this may not 
be _that_ hard, but it is an additional barrier to entry.
