The last time I suggested this for pop3proxy, someone mentioned that
several clients issue commands before the login such that the proxy
wouldn't be able to guess what server it was for.

But it sounds like we now have a report of a client that is difficult
to configure without adding the username to the servername.  I think
it should be an option to do either.  It's certainly more attractive
for configuration: The user never needs to configure anything in the
proxy beyond the port; all the per-server configuration can be done
using the client's configuration system.

There's code in pspam/pop.py that does this.  It's not difficult.
