AFAIK you can't.

What kind of maintenance scripts/tasks are you needing to do?  As most,
if not all, things can be done with machine the server is on by using
the various cyrus utilities (w/o require a password). you just have to
"su " to the cyrus user and run them. (ie.. squatter, purge, quota,
reconstruct, ctk_mboxlist, etc...)
