I used SASLv1 and SASLv2 on the same system for several months without a
problem while I was upgrading software. I had Cyrus IMAPd working with
SASLv2 and Sendmail on SASLv1 I was using the sasldb pwcheck method, and so
had to maintain both /etc/sasldb and /etc/sasldb2, but that is not so hard.
I am about to re-install SASLv1 on one server to handle OpenLDAP since I
can not get the 2.1.x branch to run on it, and have to use 2.0.27, which
does not support SASLv2 :-(.
