I agree. I am always in favor of virtual users, it just gives you a lot
more flexibility. I find system users MORE complicated to setup, actually.
You have to worry about system security in addition to IMAP stuff.  You
always have to refactor things down the road and starting off with system
users just makes it more unpleasant.
