Me too!  The benefit, it just works.  The curse, you can't remember how
to maintain it. 

I'm not up on postfix or web-cyradm, but the name sounds intriguing.
I'm not a big fan of using cyradm.  

I believe you can glean the DB4 rev with RPM.  

        rpm -q db4

FC4 is 4.3, FC3 was 4.2.

I can't help with MySQL.
