      No, that's not okay. The Microsoft-style LOGIN mechanism is missing.
      More recent Microsoft clients may support the PLAIN mechansim as well,
      but since people may be running older software I'd say it's a
      requirement to provide both PLAIN and LOGIN.

      While the OP is fixing LOGIN, I suggest he fixes support for CRAM-MD5
      and DIGEST-MD5 as well so that clients won't be forced to send passwords
      in the clear.
