It works, but it still needs work. I got a bit distracted by some
Dovecot HTTP stuff, so I haven't worked on it for the last few months.
The main thing is that I want to restructure it a bit to make a generic
SMTP server API, so that no code is duplicated between submission, lmtp,
and other future smtp-based services.

It still only lives in my patch queue:


For (my) convenience, there is a special Xi Debian repository
(dovecot-2.2.patched) that includes this patch queue.

If you want to test it: configuration should be pretty straightforward.
It includes an example configuration fil. I haven't tested it in a
while, so it may be broken at the moment. It does still compile though
(which is continuously checked by Xi).

It won't be included in Dovecot until v2.3.
