Yes, it is possible. Since clog tokens expire, 
you need a cronjob te renew 'em. The cronjob needs
to su to the sendmail uid, and pipe the password into clog.
Has been discussed here as well, search for clog, cron and pipe 
on the list archives.

I don't know for sure, but I'd say yes.

MTAs and Mailboxes are no problem for coda, just a caveat.
Again, search the codalist archives.

Yup. Recent article about semantics 
of fsync / file or directory data, IIRC.
