Not necessarily a bad thing. Would allow testing of a new configuration
on a live system by just using a different port. Aside from that,
linking /etc/imapd.conf to /etc/${othername}d.conf is easy.

Can't speak about kerberos though, no practical experience with that

Sounds interesting.
As much as i like reading well written code i havent got the spare time
to go through all the sources right now.
