Ouch! What known UA does support it ? 

What's the point of supporting only GETACL ? I guess this means that if users
run this client, shared mailboxes have to be managed by an administrator, right

Ok, but I still don't quite get it : if you use the same UID, doesn't this
somehow equates giving something like 777 modes in the system user case ? (I
mean on an OS level, problems related to such loose permission are the same
and, if in 777, permissions are no longer a problem for dovecot) ?
