SASL support #85

I would like to get end to end authentication in our application stack. Kestrel is a blocker for this. Memcached implemented SASL in about 2009: http://code.google.com/p/memcached/wiki/SASLAuthProtocol

Any chance you would consider adding SASL support? Java has a built in implementation, so accessing that from scala should be fairly easy: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/api/javax/security/sasl/package-summary.html

this might be easier to do in thrift.

I'm using kestrel with apache camel that is based on memcached protocol. Is there any way to avoid having kestrel completely open to everyone that can access the host?
