Intent to package VMailMgr

>From the Homepage of VMailMgr http://em.ca/~bruceg/vmailmgr :

VMailMgr (short for Virtual MAIL ManaGeR) is a package
of programs designed to manage multiple domains of mail 
addresses and mailboxes on a single host. It co-operates 
with qmail for mail delivery and program control. 
It features:
* A password checking interface between qmail-popup and 
  qmail-pop3d which replaces the usual checkpassword, as 
  well as an authentication module for Courier IMAP, that
  provide access to the virtual mailboxes by one of three 
  + IP-based virtual server access 
    (invisible to the POP3 user) 
  + username-based access 
  + hostname-based access 
    (virtualuser@virtual.host or virtualuser:virtual.host) 
* CDB-based password tables to speed up access for domains 
  of any size. 
* Tools to setup a virtual domain, add and delete 
  individual virtual users and aliases, and to change 
* CGI programs to accomplish the above tasks from a set of 
  web pages. 
* A native PHP library to compliment or replace the CGIs. 
* A daemon process that securely directs the operation of 
  the CGIs and PHP code. 
* A separate delivery agent that automatically deals with 
  any address inside a virtual domain from a single 
  .qmail-default file. 


This is my first attempt to build a debian package and I feel that it is going
quite good :-). The package compiles and can be installed/removed without
problems. Additionally Courier-IMAP support has been compiled in and an
init.d script has been made.
