While we're in the process of redefining this file, why don't we make
a generic "privilege" file for all network access for all users.
It could look something like:
# defaults for the various services
# a user with a POP-only mail account
This file would then be indexed into a db(3) database, and a generic
lookup function would do the lookup. Hmmmm. Come to think of it, this
looks very similar to the USERDB database of sendmail... :-)
