Since you've looked at the code, what about:

  squatter -r 'user.a*'

What I'd like to be able to do is to squat on one letter of the alphabet 
at a time, cycling through the letters maybe once a month. Obviously not 
all messages will be squatted on, but I'm worried that if I try to squat 
the entire server every night, the I/O from that combined with backups 
will mean that the squatting never finishes in time for active business 
hours. So I was thinking that a compromise would be to keep most of the 
messages squatted by cycling through what mailboxes I squat......

(Can you imagine someone reading this out-of-context? ;-)
