Actually, I think this is the better idea. I'm not 100% sure, but I
know a lot of suggestions for crazy subscription stuff, is to have a
simple script, that sits between dovecot and the imap "server", adding
in a few extra subscription commands at the start of the session.
I sometimes wonder if having some sort of "forced" subscriptions
feature, for different groups, is needed, or maybe a plugin could be
written? Problem is defining the groups, as you probably can't rely on
filesystem groups.
