Timo from dovecot, uses his own version, and has talked before about
breaking it out. Might be worth a browse of the latest Dovecot RC.

I just inquired about Heimdal's "tsasl" (not currently included in Heimdal). They are interested in a simpler sasl solutions as well. He also mentioned dovecot.

I just pulled dovecot from CVS. It looks interesting, but it'd take more time than I have right now to investigate it. There's no API documentation, so it strikes me that it's a bit premature to be considering using it, but feel free to jump in and assess it.
