I'd certainly like to take a look at it.  I'm not entirely sure I follow
what you mean by 'allow use of existing Postgres password databases'-
I'm not sure SASL support requires that ability (after all, if they want
to use the 'md5' or similar mechanism they can with the current
protocol).  Or am I missing something about how the SASL implementation
is done or intended to be used?  I'd tend to think it'd mainly be used
as a mechanism to support other authentication mechanisms which don't
use the internal Postgres passwords...
