Do we need more SASL error conditions?

Great.

The only defined errors are here:

http://www.xmpp.org/rfcs/rfc3920.html#sasl-errors

So:

<aborted/>
<incorrect-encoding/>
<invalid-authzid/>
<invalid-mechanism/>
<mechanism-too-weak/>
<not-authorized/>
<temporary-auth-failure/>

If we need more error conditions, we can define them in the next
version of the spec.
