A running Postfix server with cyrus sasl (module ldapdb). The ldapdb
connects to my LDAP server, which has passwords in cleartext in the
userPassword attribute. This is a working setup, but sure you guess, I do
not really like cleartext passwords in the database.

cmusaslsecretDIGEST-MD5 and

I am not sure. I have not ever used those attributes, and assumed that they
were used in cyrus sasl version 1.
