Normally you would return this from the userdb. I normally like to use 
SQL, among the reasons is the fact that the SQL language allows to do 
some logic beyond just returning the contents of a column.
You didn't specify what your auth backend is and what logic is being 
done in your bash script. But if you can get the right response to come 
straight from the userdb, that would affect doveadm too.
