That way we can provide packages that are "fairly standard", and in-line with what people expect. I'm not 100% familiar with what extensions are included with Dovecot by default.

vpopmail support of part of dovecot. Question is whether vpopmail is 
installed to enable it. It can be installed without vpopmail because 
vpopmail support, as with all other authentication support, is in a 
module and needs to be enabled in the configuration file for dovecot.

sieve support is still not part of the dovecot codebase and needs to be 
patched in.

As for vpopmail...I don't believe it is part of the particular 
distribution, not even Ubuntu, although some of their stuff supports it. 
spamassassin has builtin vpopmail support IIRC.
