Having no idea how that fits into your already existing infrastructure,
but the Cyrus IMAPD Aggregator (also known as Cyrus IMAPD Murder) looks
like something which should be evaluated - you probably can even drop
the mysql database, as it really doesn't matter to which of the
lmtp/imapd proxies you connect to.
