That post wasn't meant to indicate that we were not going to do either, it
 was just me grousing about the situation and proposing a solution.

What I was emphasizing was that our applications would not hard-code to one
 authentication library or another, as that would preclude (or make
 difficult) wide distribution of our software.

Understood. Thanks anyway for clarifying it.

I've also seen your reply about the GOA support bug in bugzilla (thanks for that too), and replied there as well. However, it's still not clear to me whether implementing support for GOA would be the way to fix the problem with "less secure apps", so I'd appreciate if you had some time to reply to
that concern too, either there or in that bug.

GOA provides an OAuth2 token to clients; GOA support would indeed resolve the ‘less secure apps’ problem.

My branch on the UOA bug had much of the work required to support the XOAUTH2 SASL method, which is a requirement for GOA/UOA support. I guess other person on the UOA bug didn't end up with much more free time than me, so I might start hacking on it again.
