This looks for Expunged messages to Expire.
It is a three phased delete; which is beautiful.
Message Deleted (becomes candidate for expunge)
-> Message Expunged (becomes candidate for expiration)
-> Message Expired
The first two steps are performed by the client/user. The final step
is performed by the administrator, expressed via the server's policy as
defined in cyrus.conf.
