I don't know if in your case a cluster is the better solution. If i 
should evolve my cyrus configuration i would evaluate aggregator as first possibility. It's a 
solution conceptually in the middle between perdition and a cluster.

One point of strenght of aggregator solution is that: at any time, you 
can always add an arbitrary number of nodes to your imap system.
