Right.  That's the idea.  People don't change their authentication mechanism
daily, weekly, or even yearly.  They generally pick one and stick with it
unless a larger change happens, like scaling up to a clustered environment
which generally requires a networked database.

Besides, even if people did change their backend database on a more
frequent basis, it takes around 5 seconds to recompile vpopmail.  About
the same time it would take to edit a configuration file to make it
load a different authentication module.

Please explain why you would need different parts of vpopmail talking
to different databases.
