Re: User classes
A few more thoughts.
Classes could also be defined via sasl-regexp.
sasl-regexp <search pattern> <replacement pattern> [<class>]
This would allow things like:
sasl-regex (.*) $1 alien
Also, I note that the session-level ACL cache can be
eliminated once this is implemented... allowing the
administrator to have group membership determined
once per bind or once per operation.
