Have tested it a long time ago and know why it was developed, albeit I

Absolutely right.

But: what's the matter with 'POP-before-SMTP done through MySQL' and
additionally using a .cdb-file for static entries?
Does the patch nevertheless a MySQL-lookup, even if something is found
in .cdb-file? In this case a .cdb-file in fact wouldn't make much
sense, except the fact the answer from MySQL could kept short (no
result) and some parsing time could be spared.
