I was exactly thinking about the same thing.. I wanted to request this 
feature but I guess I was too shy to write about it :D
I think a special IDLE process would be a wonderful idea. I find that 
otherwise client_limit>1 doesn't really work. It gets especially 
annoying when a client with a large mailbox makes a process grow and it 
doesn't shrink back, is there some insight about that? And, after 
service_count is maxed out, you end up having lots of processes waiting 
for the last 1 or 2 IDLEing clients to quit, so your total number of 
processes is really much larger than total connections / client_limit.
