Not yet. But I guess I should one day add support for it. Most SASL 
mechanisms support it directly without a kludgy username.

I'm not sure about the configuration though. For passwd-file I guess 
there could be just one global flag which means that the user has 
access to everyone's mails. For LDAP and SQL I guess the 
pass_filter/password_query could have a few new %vars to describe the 
other user. Or maybe there needs to be a separate filter/query for that 
case. Hmm.

Do you want the poweruser to have access to all mailboxes, or just for 
the one domain? What passdb are you using?
