- if you want to store passwords in the directory
use simple auth with TLS for security;
- if you want to use unix passwords use SASL
(and TLS) with PAM (PAM_unix or whatever)
- if you want to use other storages, use SASL
(with sasldb, GSSAPI, whatever)

DON'T use SASL with PAM and PAM_ldap!

it is MHO though, feel free to ask others :)
