I guess this could work as a simpler ACL plugin backend, if you only
needed "all access" vs. "none access". Or the ACLs could be defined in
LDAP as well. I'd rather not touch LDAP more than I have to, though. :)

I was also going to add support for defining multiple groups in
dovecot-auth (either as plain names or name=GID lists to give access to
multiple GIDs). Once that works, it's also possible to support group
ACLs in the vfile ACL backend too.
