I think there is still some work that needs to be done by the developers 
to integrate the code in the cyrus distribution. I have more confidence 
in something that is in the cyrus distribution than a seperate patch.
I didn't look close enough yet, but it would be good if the cyrus 
developers also reviewed this solution and make sure that everything has 
been taken into account, wouldn't it?

If it means that in order to get this done in the near future we need to 
pay a bit, I think that's certainly a good option.
