Something still seems off here. Jaybird 3 will only work with Legacy_Auth if
Srp is not specified at all. This means one has no migration path of having
both enabled. This is not really ideal.

In comparison, Flamerobin, can connect via Legacy Auth no matter the order,
Legacy_Auth,Srp or Srp,Legacy_Auth both work for Legacy. If Flamerobin can use
either, seems Jaybird should as well.
