Re: proxy authorization acl

We already have a proxy authorization policy mechanism
in authz-regexp (sasl-regex), why do we need another?

I think it's a bit problematic because anyone who has been using proxyAuthorization previously would now have to add "proxy" rights to all of their existing ACLs. But conceptually it matches the behavior of the other ACL rights (i.e., default denied, must be explicitly granted). Comments?
