I've thought of that; but it really needs to be run whenever a mailbox
is created or destroyed.  Or at least when a shared mailbox or user's
inbox is created or destroyed.  If that were only possible via cyradm,
I could just wrap a script around that; but it can be done my some MUAs
as well.

And whatever utility I used to do that would need to know the same
Cyrus implementation details and be kept in sync with any Cyrus changes.

Nothing except the principal of implementation opacity that the Cyrus
architecture implements so well for basic delivery and mailbox access.
