FreeBDS-based system with only 5,000 users, I haven't noticed any problems
yet.

Is there a reason the qpopper folks didn't do this in the first place?  The
defined it, but never used it.

This would break APOP, which parameters are a username and a md5sum (32
bytes,
if I read the source correctly).

Puzzled,
Aaron out.
