I have now checked in a version with this behaviour. Is this better or
should I just drop the whole thing and just use saslauthd. What I like
about the current solution is that I jabberd can be installed and it
works without the need to change anything if pam without shadow is used.
If pam with shadow is used it is necessary to change a line in
sysconfig/jabberd and it should work. If any other authentication
mechanisms is desired the user has to configure something of course but
to get a working jabberd it is just install it and you're done.
