So, 5 years later, I got to implementing `dovecot-virtual` :)

I'd like to set up a `LargeMailbox/Virtual/30d` mailbox that restricts
the view of a hidden, and otherwise inaccessible `LargeMailbox` to "last
30 days" rolling window.

`dovecot-virtual` for that is simple enough, but ACL-s get in the way.

LargeMailbox ACL user=Moi none
LargeMailbox/Virtual/30d ACL user=Moi lrwsip

It looks like `docevot` is correctly restricting reading
`LargeMailbox` - user Moi is able to subscribe the mailbox, but sees
zero messages in there.

How can I make `LargeMailbox` readable from a virtual without giving the
mail client the ability to read all of `LargeMailbox` on its own?
