That's the problem... PERL is running as apache access. I wrote C code and
compile it [using h2xs] as PERL Package [because i don't want to do an exec].
The problem is that PERL is running as apache access, and this user is added
to mail group, but mail group doesn't have access to /var/imap/quota.

The C code implements a method in this package called:

int percent( char* mailbox )

That returns percentaje used by the user on this mailbox. It works with
cyrus/root access... but i need to access with mail user access.

[i don't want to put apache into the cyrus access, just because i want to
read quota, not the whole mailbox]
