MD5 weaknesses are not really relevant for this use. I don't think there
is an attack better than bruteforcing the password (which can be a
practical attack against CRAM-MD5 though if the passwords are short
enough to be remembered/typed by humans as you can do it offline after
capturing some traffic).
