[Dovecot] UIDL and namespaces after qmail-pop3d and BincIMAP

Hello, I migrated qmail-pop3d and BincIMAP to Dovecot in the past, and I 
could always tweak the settings a little to match what old services used 
to provide, namely namespaces (separator /, prefix INBOX/) and 
pop3_uidl_format (%f).

This time I'm migrating to a large mail system which has its 
configuration set differently and there's no changing it.

pop3_uidl_format = %08Xu%08Xv
namespace private {prefix = INBOX.  separator = .  inbox = yes}

Am I corrent in thinking dsync plugin is the only chance I have of 
getting this mail migrated right? Unfortunately Debian's Dovecot is much 
much older than required v2.1.4... so I could use some advice from 
Dovecot experts.
