Actually I just wrote a similiar patch a few days ago .. :) 
http://dovecot.org/patches/pop3-uidl-uwimap.patch it's against .10.5

I was thinking about making this fully configurable, ie. a config 
option which would accept printf-like string. "%v.%u" "%08xv%08xu" or 
something. Or maybe it's not worth it, I'd have to look at other POP3 
servers to see what different kinds of UIDs they use..
