Well, current CVS has some code for it, but it's still missing some
configuration. Actually I'm not really sure how I should do that, I
found one way but Postfix doesn't seem to doing that..

And secure? I doubt it, I did a quick audit to it a month ago and found
3 buffer overflows. I checked mostly just PLAIN mechanism which I use
with Postfix, so there may well be more left in other auth mechanisms.
