I guess I'm missing a step in the logic -- you're going to allow 
user+Topic or user+Foobar or user+Baz, yet the user has not created 
these folders yet? So you're basically going to have Exim create the new 
folders on the fly *for* the user and update 'subscriptions'? (shudder)

My logical thinking is:

- admin enables local part suffixes globally
- user creates folder Foobar
- user creates/adds filter lingo to grab Foobar and folder it

I guess your logic is that you'd do a global filter that shoves things 
for people and no users would edit their own filters, which seems like a 
whole lot of admin headache and overhead. Unless I'm missing something
