No there's nothing wrong with it. Anton Blajev asked about an 
alternative to security/cyrus-sasl. I like Dovecot very much so I wanted 
to mention it. rafan already mentioned cyrus-sasl2 so I didn't have to 
talk about it anymore. Dovecot SASL is easier to configure than Cyrus 
SASL IMO and I know that Dovecot developers focus very much on security 
whereas for Cyrus developers I don't know. However if you prefer Cyrus I 
don't think there is anything wrong with it.
