Is there an IMSP addressbook admin user

There's something not quite right.  I added "imsp.admin.all N (cyrus)" to the
default options file, cyrus being the admin user for imap as well.  With
implicit 'a' rights, I would think I could then change the acl to give myself
the full "lrwcda" set of rights.

I am using phpimspclient-1.0b-rev4 and when I sign in as a regular user, I
can add the cyrus acl to that users addressbook.  However, log in as the
'cyrus' user, I cannot add an acl to any regular user's addressbook.

Is there something else that needs to be set as well?
