I was thinking more along the lines of global support. I know qmail supports
it, but procmail, qpopper, etc. do not. They have options to support it if
they are recompiled, but they don't have any command line or config file
options to support it. For now, I've just been rebuilding them from the debian
source after changing the necessary config options, and installing my modified
package. It would be nice if there were run-time options, or even two
different packages (for example qpopper_spool and qpopper_home).
