I agree; but what Chris wrote in another thread about driving
a truck was pretty to the point.

As a matter of fact a while ago I was taking care about some cyrus
server so I have some idea what I am talking about. If you are doing
these things everyday then you are learning quickly tricks of a
trade, and indiosyncratic ways various things are handled, and you
can even appreciate nice things you got in the deal.  But if you
need to manipulate a one mailbox once in a blue moon this becomes a
headache of _major_ proportions with substantial possibilities of a
screwup.
