squatter probably should handle wildcards like ipurge, but how do we 
maintain backwards compatibility with the -r option?  What do we do if 
someone does:

squatter -r user.%

In v2.2 we have added a /squat mailbox annotation, so you can get more 
fine-grained control over squatter.  In fact, the user's can specify 
which of their personal mailboxes they want squatted so that the admin 
doesn't have to be bothered.
