Yes, this is a need I also ran into, but hadn't gotten around to submitting a bug for.  If we are going to do this, though, I think we should do it right and add the ability to support arbitrary login methods.  An example of one way to do this is the imaplib authobj protocol.  

As things are, I wound up implementing XYMCOOKIE login using the even-more-primitive-than-SMTP-cmd-level operation 'do_cmd'.
