Yes, it looks alright.  Except possible to `else' clause, isn't it OK to 
warn about if no supported mechanism was supported?  I'm not sure just 
ignoring it is OK.  Well, the server would reject the submission saying 
that no authentication was performed, but the user would be somewhat 
surprised since she did supply credentials, but the real problems was that 
smtpmail.el didn't support the SASL mechanism offered by the server.
