Cyrus shared folders

we are setting up a Cryus IMAP server (2.1.18 on Debian Sarge). Account 
management is done by "saslauthd -a pam" which gets its data from a 
mysql database (pam_mysql). This works fine - with this setup the mail 
users don't have to have a system account.

Now we are looking for a way to set up shared folders and bulletin 
boards. However, as far as I can see, the Cyrus server reads the 
user-to-group relationship always from /etc/group. Is there a way to use 
the database for this purpose? If not, can the Cyrus server be run 
chrooted with its own /etc/group? Or is there any other workaround to 
avoid using /etc/group of the base system?

Thanks Klaus
