I see a lot of you discussing the removal of these variables from the
latest-greatest smtpmail.el and I even see some references to it being
accidental.  I could not find any comments in the file that explained
why the old behavior was changed but it seems that everyone is unhappy
with the change.  (Everyone is probably too strong but I haven't seen
anyone defend these changes.)

Since all changes are discussed on this mailing list, could someone give
me a reference to why the changes occurred and what's wrong with the
scheme as it was?

I'm still on the "old" scheme that's available with "GNU Emacs
(i386-mingw-nt6.0.6002) of 2011-06-20 on 3249CTO" and I *really like
it*, I have a hook for selecting authentication that actually works and
so on.  So any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Gnus should be more complicated.
