In my opinion it is better if it does more than just the mbox
verification.  I'd like to see the quota check as well.  I am not sure if
the "map protocol" allows for multiple return codes rather than just
yes/no type answer.  Then there is the performance consideration, I would
hope that the "map protocol" allows for a "persistent" tcp connection.
