Out of curiosity, why MySQL? There seem to be a _lot_ of people trying
to use Cyrus with MySQL, but I haven't seen any mention of why MySQL is
a particularly desirable choice for authentication.

Then again, I use LDAP for authentication myself - so I can certainly
see why there would be a desire for /some/ sort of shared, network
capable authentication scheme.

I'd be really interested in why you or others have chosen MySQL as your
authentication back-end.
