I'm not sure what you mean by this.

Well, I think compiling and using by default are different things.
Compiling everything by default doesn't really hurt anything, but using
all of them by default does.

I can't really think of how this could be improved. I think no matter
what change I do people will start complaining.

Yea. For v2.0 I'm planning on splitting it up. I already once did such a
split and asked people's suggestions about that (IIRC).

I'm hoping to get http://wiki.dovecot.org/NewIndex into a usable state
some day and it should hopefully be easy enough to install Dovecot into
a fully usable state. :)

Anyway there already is wiki -> Quota page.

I think SSL certificates are generated by most Dovecot binary packages,
so this is a FreeBSD port-issue I think..
