I wonder if I might add a request please. Would it be possible to
offer an option which limits the per-user number of imap processes?
We have users who gaily open 30 mail folders simultaneously. OK, 1
or 2 such users dont matter, but the number creeps up.

Also, would a PDF version of the wiki docs be possible? It is very
handy to take something to read in bed...

And a big thank you for dovecot. We are migrating right now.
