[Dovecot] Feature Request - starting dovecot, config file behavior

I was wondering how much trouble it would be to again emulate the way
postfix does something - in this case, the way it reads its config file
when starting up.
If postfix encounters the same setting defined more than once, the last
If dovecot encounters the same setting defined more than once it gives
an error (also when using the 'dovecot -n' command).
I like to add all of my changes to the very bottom of the config file,
but otherwise leave the config file as is... this makes it very easy
when updating - I can easily keep all of the new default config file,
and simply merge my customizations at the end.
So - how hard would it be to make dovecot simply accept the last defined
setting read, instead of refusing to start?
Thanks much, and glad to have you back in action!
