We have aprox 300 users who have shell access on the same machine as where 
the cyrus process runs. It would be -very- nice if they wouldn't have to 
enter their username/password whenever they run Pine.

Pine supports pre-start commands: "ssh-command=/usr/sbin/imapd" is what we 
now use with uw-imapd. They can then access their mail folder without having 
to authenticate themselves.
