cyradm | Duplicate specification

Hi Ismaël,

Which version of perl are you running? (`perl --version` will tell you) A fairly newish one, I guess?

The cyradm tools were written using a quite old version of perl, which didn't produce a lot of warnings. I expect it's working fine, but your newer perl version is producing warnings that the older versions did not.

It would be good to fix up a lot of this cruft -- do you want to raise an issue on and include the details from your email and your perl version? I can't promise it'll get looked at quickly, but at least it won't get forgotten. :)
