sorry to bother you again, but I think there is a problem with this patch:

If a maildir contains several copies of the same message all in the same 
folder, dsync will not deduplicate them.

While IMAP cannot directly create copies of a message in the same 
folder, it does still happen if you copy (or move) a message back and 
forth between two folders.
