I'm quite uneasy about this.  It seems like the addition of a lot of
code; effectively, a fork of the SASL code from upstream.

Presumably the real end goal here is something to do with security.
But I don't think we would want to offer security support for this new

And it might complicate other fixes to qemu-trad, because different
versions of qemu-trad would need different patches (ie, it might
complicate backporting existing securit fixes).

Simon: What is stopping you moving to a modern version of qemu ?
