Anubis needs to do an ident query to enable it to find the relevant
~/.anubisrc file, I believe.

If it fails, couldn't we just run with the contents of the site-wide
file? I accept that this will lead to people putting per-user
configurations into the site-wide file rather than sort out the ident
issue, but just because this isn't adviseable doesn't mean it shouldn't
be possible.

As an alternative, if SMTP/AUTH were used, could there be a mapping from
AUTH data to system username/~/.anubisrc? That way, we would be relying
on the final MTA to do the identification, rather than ident ...
