This might be easily worked around using the ability of cyrus-SASL to
authenticate one set of credentials and authorize access to a different
user's resources. I don't think you can use cyradm, as it expects to be
an IMAP admin, but you may be able to do it with a simple perl IMAP client.
I've used this trick with mailutil (from the uw-imap project) to great
effect when migrating mailboxes from a previous IMAP system.
