Which is, I believe, why saslauthd was created - to load the
authentication off to another software outside the chroot. There is
absolutely no documentation though.

Why not?

Is there any way to synchronize the /etc/shadow and /etc/sasldb
passwords? I am asking because my users finally learnt how to use the
passwd binary. I can't expect them to know anything else.
