I rebased the SCRAM authentication patches over current master. Here you

I'm trying to whack this into the final shape that it could actually be
committed. The previous thread on SCRAM authentication has grown
ridiculously long and meandered into all kinds of details, so I thought
it's best to start afresh with a new thread.

So, if you haven't paid attention on this for a while, now would be a
good time to have another look at the patch. I believe all the basic
functionality, documentation, and tests are there, and there are no
known bugs. Please review! I'll start reading through these myself again

One thing that's missing, that we need to address before the release, is
the use of SASLPrep to "normalize" the password. We discussed that in
the previous thread, and I think we have a good path forward on it. I'd
be happy to leave that for a follow-up commit, after these other patches
have been committed, so we can discuss that work separately.

These are also available on Michael's github repository, at
