We kinda bruteforce it here:
open(OUT, "| ssh root\@$location /usr/local/cyrus/bin/deliver -q
-r osuhelpdesk\@oregonstate.edu $username");
(where $location is the backend holding $username's mailbox)
Then we pipe in our prepared overquota warning message to it.

Is anyone using this? I don't have a script which speaks LMTP, so some
example code would be useful.
