True enough.

My point was simply that
!include_try local.conf
does not need to be commented out at all, since it's just a try. What's 
the purpose of commenting it out?

I really do like the idea of a local.conf file, literally. I created one 
myself for my own (local) configuration settings after reading through 
the dovecot.conf file. It wasn't until I tested my local.conf settings 
that I realized that the statement in the dovecot.conf file was 
commented out! My bad that I didn't notice the comment to begin with, 
but then it occurred to me - why is it commented? Works the same either 
way. :)
