Hello Bryan,

Yes, I can package it. (I need to finish the official new release first;
we have made many changes in the past 1.5 years. Also, I am about to place
the source at a CVS hosting service. Be sure to join the vm-pop3d-announce
to learn of new release.)

Do you want it to pre-create a vm-pop3d user and group? Or should it use
mail group?

I'll also need to make a rcorder-style rc.d script. But running from inetd
is better because then no superuser privileges are needed (when using
virtual users).
