Here's a rough thought for a fix.  Some auth_*() methods require a challenge, but some don't, e.g. auth_plain().  Let's allow authobject() to be called with challenge=None.  If they allow an initial-response, then they can just return the response bytes.  If they return None, then they don't allow an initial-response and so must wait for the challenge (i.e. 334 response code).

I think that would at least restore backward compatibility for AUTH PLAIN.
