That is indeed the question that needs to be answered, and I think
you're right that it's too complex and too deployment-specific a problem
to be solved inside of Cyrus.
The patch I posted earlier in this thread:
is a rough-and-ready means for the frontend to farm the decision out to
something that _is_ competent to decide. In my world, that's pretty
much always a perl script which interrogates OpenLDAP, but other
people's scenarios may differ ;-)
