How about supporting using adding a hostname in the "defaultpartition:"
configuration value on the murder server ?
Something like "hostname:default", the same as the renamemailbox command
would make sense. Ok, it wouldn't give a way to say "such domain on this
backend, such domaine on the other one" but it would be a start (just
change this value when the backend is full), and better than random picking.
