Being on CentOS 6.2 I am running the mysql backend, but I'm using AD integration.  Are there significant issues in getting the library feature to work with that combination?
No. It's quite independent of the authentication method you use. I use 
it with 2-forest AD myself.
All you need is
and then per-user libraries (if you need them) in
Then you setup WebDAV on /var/zendto/library in your Apache setup (there 
are examples of this in the docs somewhere, I'm sure) so that people can 
mount http://your-zendto-server/library as a webdav resource in Windows 
Explorer or Mac Finder and drop files into it.

Nothing yet. I'm no longer responsible for MailScanner development, I've 
passed that on to other folks now.

I guess I could, yes. Will have to take a look at doing that.
