It would probably help if security/cyrus-sasl was broken into client and
server packages. I found it quite objectionable that Subversion was
pulling in daemon packages (needing users and groups to be added). If
Subversion was just linking to a library that supported SASL but
otherwise stayed out of the way then having SASL support on by default
would be the obvious choice, and probably no-one would complain.
As it was, it seemed to cause instant and widespread annoyance :)
