This is the sort of thing that should be going into CentOSPlus rather 
than fragmented user builds. What I would recommend you do is - test 
dovecot, if you need tweaks ( as you clearly do in c4 ) - open an issue 
at bugs.centos.org - file it against CentOS Plus and say that you are a 
CentOS Community member.

In an ideal world, one would attach a .diff / .patch for the base centos 
.spec file as well :D

Once its in the repo's - you get the benefit of near zero maintenence 
work, and a lot more users get from your contribution and will send 
millions of dollars to you.

Maybe not the millions, but the rest is true!
