We have done it by simply copy the Cyrus Mailbox, use the  
"cyrus2dovecot" script listed here  
http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Migration/Cyrus and afterwards apply dsync to  
convert if maildir is not the intended target format for Dovecot. The  
2.0.19 Dovecot version is the one included in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS BTW.
