I don't quite know where you're going with this, but it seems clear that you
haven't implemented this before (I have, BTW).

Anyway, I don't care one way or the other what you do because
right now I have no need for any SASL support in Apache DS.

All I've been trying to say in this thread is that the assertion that
a filter is not required in order to implement SASL is false (at least
in the case that support for encryption is required).
