So, where is the problem? Just don't use the mysql support. You won't
dump exim/sendmail/postfix because they have ldap support you don't
use, do you? The same is true for this package. It has a set of built
in features and you just activate them or not.

Otherwise if dovecot has say 10 features to turn on or off you would
end with 2^10

There is no other distribution. :)
