According to the Wiki, it's supposed to be implemented as such:

Add the -d parameter to specify the destination username: 

|/var/qmail/bin/preline -f /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/deliver -d $...@$user

But the 'core' LDA Wiki shows that to deliver WITHOUT doing a lookup (because 
we already know where it will be delivered), you can do:

HOME=/path/to/user/homedir deliver -f $FROM_ENVELOPE

What I was going to test (and just haven't gotten around to it) is what '-f' is 
for.  If it's for bounces, then we can essentially ignore it as long as deliver 
doesn't complain.
Then all vdelivermail would need to do is set the HOME environment variable, 
and pipe the message to deliver.
