What does support for this actually mean? Does NTLM support multiple
character sets or how exactly is the conversion done? A simple UTF8 ->

I'm not against ntlm_auth() support, but personally I don't really care
about it at the moment. I'm of course willing to answer questions about
Dovecot code if someone wants to implement it.
