I've often thought that vpopmail needed some sort of delivery script.
I liked some of maildrop, but it's too bloated to be incorporated
as is.

It does handle multiple system users.  It requires one core user.  You
can add domains and users to other user ids.

vadddomain accepts -d, -i, and -g, all of which can be used to relocate
a domain's directory, and re-assign it's UID and GID.

vpopmail has a PostgreSQL module, as well as a MySQL module, and the
somewhat outdated, but probably still functional, Sybase and Oracle modules.

I think adding specific support for external LDAs is easy enough to implement.
As far as libraries, we could probably use EPS in support of any delivery
script mechanism.
