I think that's a great idea. I do think that the example should
minimally include replay protection, since we have that already. This
would be a very valuable document to have around since there's going to
be a lot of people (including me) that will be unfamiliar with SASL.
That said, I am withdrawing my request for <edigest>. I still think it
would be a good addition, but after a _lot_ of thought on it, it seems
a little late for that (yes, I know that's what everyone was saying).
Kudos to those of you who stuck to your guns -- you were right. I'm
convinced and ready to push for SASL wherever possible.
What a week.
