Wow. Above and beyond the call of duty. I'm glad I could be a catalyst
for common sense in the source code. I wan't to change as little as
possible on our mail servers running an older version, but the patches
give me a good strong push in the right direction even though I can't
apply them directly. Curiously, the latest cyrus-imapd has many more
hard-coded file name instances that 2.2.12
