Hmm...That's how I did it on another system, but this time I was hoping to 
avoid having to try smtp sasl authentication with fetchmail (don't know if 
that even works) when LMTP seemed to be a perfect way to get from FM to 
postfix. Veering OT, now...anyway, I need to keep sasl auth on for smtp 
connections in this application.

I was hoping for info to make this work:

  fetchmail --LMTP--> postfix --LMTP--> cyrus
