[Dovecot] INBOX as Maildir and folders as mbox

I was wondering whether anybody has managed to get Dovecot 1.0 to store
INBOX as Maildir and folders as mbox.

I've tried something like

default_mail_env =

but it doesn't seem to work (treats INBOX as mbox).

I'm hoping to move some INBOXes from mbox on local disk to Maildir on
nicely-mirrored NetApp NFS (or possibly iSCSI) servers for redundancy
and better incremental backups.

I'm probably doing something silly, or have misunderstood something!
