P.S. Ken, not sure if this would be easier or more complex, but another
alternative here might be to write a mysql backend to cyrus, which
would eliminate the need to worry about redundancy given mysql's
multimaster functionality (this might also provide better
searching/sort/access and enormous scaleability to the cyrus backends).
