Cyrus Fastmail Patches

This is an email in the style of the Linux Kernel Mailing Lists
patch series.  In a threaded mail reader, all the patches will be
replies to this message, meaning you can easily reply to any of
them and it will all thread neatly together.

Along with targetted CCs (basically, you add the interested users
for each patch as "Cc:" lines in the commit message and it
automatically adds them as a CC just to the patch they care about)
it's an interesting way to do development.

I'm thinking of pushing all these changes to CVS soon, but I'd
appreciate any comments.

[PATCH 1/5] Rewrite zlib inflate handling

This is the one Simon tested.  It's running on our testbed, and
will be on production shortly.

[PATCH 2/5] Add "-x" option to cyr_expire to disable expunge

I've had this for a while - though we're not using it yet.  The
idea is to allow trimming the duplicate DB more frequently without
having to pay the IO hit of statting and reading all the 
cyrus.expunge files.

[PATCH 3/5] Fix missing closedir() - bug #3159
[PATCH 4/5] cyrus-imapd-2.3.15-oldgcc.patch from Simon Matter

Two little patches from the release announcement for 2.3.15 - sorry
about the rush meaning we couldn't include these for this release!

[PATCH 5/5] Track idling state and tell idled if we lose connection

I just wrote this!  Untested, but it will be pretty soon, because I'm
tired of random processes being shot with a signal they aren't expecting.
