Sure Andy. Actually re-use of logins is forbidden by our law. But you 
could still have one user coming back to the company in a different 
role, so stale ACLs could still create a problem.

Well, the problem exists even if the user changes role/division without 
interruption (ex. secretary -> sales) and should not see old mailboxes

We're facing more social aspects too. Like preventing ever growing 
mailboxes, still leaving large quotas and keeping cyrus "fluid" 
(actually the web client)
