You can start with a single cyrus server and turn it into cyrus murder
easily later. We just did that "migration" a week ago here, and it was
totally painless. As with everything, I'd suggest doing it in a test
Basically, all we did was bring up an empty murder master and 2 frontends,
then we reconfigured the backend server to use murder and restarted it.
