> The accepted authentication mechanisms of the AuthenticationProviders depend on the underlying
transport. Notably, PLAIN is not accepted if the transport is not secured/encrypted.
> This is a security feature to prevent passwords being transfered in the clear.
> However, there is a way to override this and both these facts should be documented.
> This was discussed on the mailing list: http://qpid.2158936.n2.nabble.com/Runnig-python-examples-td7626255.html
