Alright, I stared at the code.  David can chime up, but I believe what
"legacy" does (the default) is two things:

Right.  As far as this goes:

#       The password for POP service when the -sasl switch is used

The description or the semantics?  It really did/does use the login
name for the password.  I think it's long past time that we remove
