... and the approach _already implemented_ by auth-source-xoauth2, which works 
for Gnus and anything else using auth-source in Emacs:


(There is some hackery involved in `auth-source-xoauth2-enable` in order to 
make the protocol work for IMAP/SMTP.)

It looks like this approach keeps popping up as a "possible solution," so I'll 
just point out again that this is _already implemented_ in the package above, 
and is being used by various people to make Gnus work with Gmail and XOAuth2. 
The discussion here is about how to _avoid_ having to do that.
