a) You can make the namespaces visible (list=yes) and they'll show up
just like regular mailboxes. Might confuse users.

b) You make the namespaces hidden (list=no, hidden=yes) and the only way
to access them is by explicitly configuring client's namespace path to
that. That's of course a pretty painful thing to do. Maybe by using two
different accounts that would be slightly better.

But the main reason for lazy_expunge is to allow a) custom-built
webmails or b) sysadmins to do the unexpunging.
