> Currently the web management hard codes the sasl mechanisms it knows about with an if/then/else
ladder. We want to make the sasl mechanism pluggable. The client will know the sasl mechanisms
that the server supports during the initial /sasl request. The client side should try to load
the sasl implementation from a well known location URL. If the sasl client mechanism is found
the implementation (which will meet an agreed interface - probably based on the Java Sasl
Client design), will be used. If the sasl mechanism doesn't exist, the client should fall
through to the next mechanism.
> It will be possible to increase the SASL mechanisms supported by a WMC by dropping in
a web fragment JAR containing another SASL js implementation. 
> We need to decide how the client will chose its preferred mechanism.
