I was going to suggest this ... something to at least go through and clean 
up the size flags on Maildir (which seems worthwhile, especially for people 
using quotas).

Certainly a +1 on that... as I'm about to implement ACLs and it'd be nice to 
be able to test I've got it right from a simple command line tool.

Additional to this would be (plugin permitting) to compress Maildir, or 
recompress+reindex mbox (Am I right in thinking compressed mbox can be 
appended to, but not modified?  In which case recompressing could likely 
save some extra space.)
