Have a look at the draft 23 pre 3 I've just posted.

What you'll need is:
command /= authinfo-user-command
authinfo-user-command = "AUTHINFO" WS "USER" WS username
authinfo-pass-command = "AUTHINFO" WS "PASS" WS password
"AUTHINFO" WS "SASL" WS mechanism [WS initial-response]
username = 1*P-CHAR
password = 1*P-CHAR
mechanism = 1*P-CHAR
initial-response = ("=" / base64-string)
command-continuation /= authinfo-sasl-continuation
authinfo-sasl-continuation = ("*" / "=" / base64-string) CRLF

The above would do that.
