I called it RoaminUsersHandler cause we could easly use it for
IMAPBeforeSMTP if imap is included. So i thought this "general" name is
the best.

 And I agree that we should rebuild the protocol handlers in the same manner as we rebuilt
SMTP (and which IMAP, conceptually, used earlier), using pluggable command handlers.
Exactly what i want to do too :-) This will us give more flexibility. I
did the commit with the hardcoded one to "show" what we can improve and
why we should. I think to have a "base" on which we can discuss is
better then nothing.
