Oh, it reminds me of one thing I would like to have - maybe it is 
possible? Some IMAP clients (especially outlooks) create junk/sent/etc. 
folders with various names, depending on national settings.
Is it possible to provide a - let's say - dictionary, which would always
return the same folder (like Sent) no matter if client asks for "Sent",
"Sent Mail" or "Elementy wys&AUI-ane"?

Hmm... Now, when I formed the question it seems that this MIGHT be a 
problem :) What should dovecot provide when client asks for list of 
subscribed folders? If I know that there is a polish version of MS Outlook,
I should provide "Elementy wys&AUI-ane", but "Sent" if it is roundcube...

I don't want something I need. I want something I want.
