global admin without defaultdomain?

Hi folks,

I asked earlier how I could get users within the primary (default) domain 
hashed into the domain/ subdirectories of the imap spool instead of being 
right at the toplevel without any real domain association. I was told that 
the defaultdomain option was meant to ease the passage from version 2.1 to 
2.2, so if I simply didn't set it, I'd get the hashing all nice and 

Now I have a slightly different issue. I've finally gone back and set 
things up in this manner. No defaultdomain setting. Users are hashed in 
the domains as they should be, however I'd like to have a global admin. 
The documents say I need the defaultdomain to have a global admin. Why? 
Is there anyway to get around this?

I'd like to have a global admin without having the defaultdomain set. I 
don't really understand why that would be a requirement. Maybe this 
behavior should be some sort of configurable flag. If someone could 
point me in the direction to the source I could hack past to disable this 
behavior, I'd greatly appreciate it :-)

Let he who is without clue kiss my ass
