[Dovecot] Troubleshooting - another suggestion...

Hi Timo,

I'm the one who suggested the '-n' option to capture the actual config 
settings that the running dovecot process was using (ala postfix), and 
you implemented it very quickly - so thanks for that!

Now, I'd like to suggest an enhancement...

Many people still do not provide basic things like dovecot version, and 
there are secondary config files like dovecot-ldap, whose settings are 
not included in the dovecot -n output.

How difficult would it be to add these to the output so that the output 
would include the running dovecot version, as well as any extra config 
settings from any other files that are loaded when dovecot starts?

It would sure make it easier, both for us troubleshooting on our own, 
and when asking for help on the list.

Many thanks, and terrific job on 1.0!

Now all dovecot lacks is full support for IMAP ACLs/shared folders, and 
support for single-instance storage, and it will have no real competition...


Best regards,
