PHPMailer and OAuth

I noticed that in the PHPMailer class provided with WordPress, AuthType is limited to CRAM-MD5, LOGIN, or PLAIN. But I noticed this page in their wiki which says that support for XOAUTH2 was added in version 5.2.11.

I also took a look at the SMTP class provided with WordPress, and there is a OAuth variable, but it's not used for anything (at least as far as I could tell).

I think it would be nice if this functionality was included with WordPress.

Let me know what you think, thanks.
