Why? Smaller chance of screwups if they don't have compatible file
locking, or making authentication configuration easier? I don't think
either is much of a problem though.
I've been thinking of making a Dovecot POP3 daemon as well. POP3
protocol is so simple that it doesn't take many hours to implement it,
especially because I've tried to keep the IMAP protocol isolated from
the actual functionality (I didn't fully succeed in it, but well
enough). Anyway, this probably won't come that soon, IMAP part still
needs much to do.
If you really need mbox POP3 server, I'd suggest popa3d.
