What do you think this would look like?  Email::Sender is an abstraction layer
over sending/delivering, and one could write multiple SMTP-backed transports
for it, if needed.

I can't speak to Cyrus's performance as a distributed store per se, as opposed
to having your own distribution layer atop multiple Cyruses.

I can say that Cyrus is quite performant and I've found it fairly painless to
work with.  As it stands now, I am largely a consumer of its IMAP and JMAP
servers, rather than an administrator of it.  Using it to store and quickly
read through large amounts of mail has been pleasant.
