I want to have as much information about the users and their mailboxes
as possible in an SQL database (I use Pg), so I can easily move things
around, change permissions and what-not.

I thought about using LMTP, but so far shyed away from it because I
suspected that it would be unable to do uid/gid switching on a per-user
basis. But I'll check this idea out as well.

I have not done anything special to the Debian installation, but
checking if that contains an unwanted chroot somewhere, is a good idea!
