[Dovecot] Dovecot 2.0beta3: Auth master process is now running as default_internal_user

with 'changeset 10910' the Auth master process is running as 'default_internal_user' now (dovecot). This requires permissions tuning for 'passwd-files' at least, while other plugins would run in a different user context, 'vmail' in my setup. I see that this may be safer, just wondering how to streamline the config:

[20:27] root spectre:/var/vmail/conf.d# l
drwxr-x--- 4 dovecot vmail 4096 2010-03-14 17:40 leuxner.net

[20:27] root spectre:/var/vmail/conf.d# l leuxner.net/
drwx------ 2 vmail   vmail 4096 2010-03-14 13:09 acls
-r-------- 1 dovecot vmail  125 2010-02-07 13:08 passwd
drwx------ 2 vmail   vmail 4096 2010-03-14 12:13 sieve

[20:27] root spectre:/var/vmail/conf.d# cat leuxner.net/passwd
