> Using the current SASL api, an application has to poll the pn_sasl_t object's state (pn_sasl_state())
until a terminal state is reached (STATE_PASS/FAIL).
> Once the terminal state is reached, the outcome can be queried via pn_sasl_outcome.
> Unfortunately, when the sasl client receives an authentication failure outcome from the
sasl server, the sasl layer returns PN_ERR from its input processing code.  This causes the
pn_transport_push() to return a generic error.
> From the application's point of view, this effectively results in the transport failing
*before* the sasl terminal state has been reached.  The application will interpret this event
as a generic input failure on the transport - not the authentication failure it actually was.
