Out of curiosity, I recently looked at successful logins on jabber.org
over a series of days (all over TLS, of course). The methods used were:
SASL PLAIN 10.03%
plaintext (XEP-0078) 3.97%
It's interesting that DIGEST-MD5 is still so widely used, despite
interoperability problems over the years. And 4% use of XEP-0078
indicates that there are still some really old clients out there (it's
been almost 14 years since the publication of RFC 3920).
