You can re-enable plaintext logins if you really want:

$ cat /etc/c-client.cf
I accept the risk
set disable-plaintext nil

Unfortunately, this is only half-way documented in
/usr/share/doc/libc-client2002edebian/README.Debian, see #266689. I
admit to not really have followed up yet to that bug, but my position
still is that if the 'set disabled-plaintext nil' is documented, the
other line required should be documented too.
