True, I hadn't thought about that.
I'm not much of a C programmer especially in the scheme of something as
complex as Dovecot... but if you could be so kind as to point me within a
couple of metres of the location in the code where the changes to %n and %d
get made by auth_username_format, I'll try to patch something myself locally
on my servers to get the result I need for now and leave it up to you to
decide if it's worthwhile adding additional variables at some point down the
road to expose the original values.
