Thanks for adding this to the wiki.  As I've said before, I'm 
comfortable with most, if not all, of this.

I'm still working on completing the BODYPARTSTRUCTURE piece of 
URLAUTH=BINARY in 2.4.  I'm trying to decide if I want to search through 
the preformatted BODYSTRUCTURE response in cyrus.cache for the requested 
part, or re-parse the MIME headers for the requested part on the fly. 
Or perhaps there is some other slick way of doing this that hasn't 
occurred to me yet.
