sasl_authorize_t - The SASL authorization callback
int sasl_authorize_t(void *context,
const char *requested_user, unsigned alen,
const char *auth_identity, unsigned alen,
const char *def_realm, unsigned urlen,
struct propctx *propctx)
sasl_authorize_t is used to check whether the authorized user
auth_identity may act as the user requested_user. For example the user
root may wish to authenticate with his credentials but act as the user
tmartin (with all of tmartin's rights not roots). A server application
should be very careful, and probably err on the side of caution, when
determining which users may proxy as whom.
SASL callback functions should return SASL return codes. See sasl.h for
a complete list. SASL_OK indicates success.
