If ACL plugin is enabled then yes, you'll have some trouble. Currently
there is unfortunately no way to just give permissions to all mailboxes
for a master user. But you could just not tell Dovecot's imap process
that a master user is logging in. In the backend's userdb query you
should be able to return master_user=%u.
