No, I think CONTROL is important. I have to set CONTROL dir outside the 
maildir directory because I use also filesystem quota.
But I use vpopmail and the 'maildirsize' file for the soft quota it must stay 
in maildir root and not in CONTROL dir.
So I need the CONTROL files in /var/cache/dovecot (/home has quota enable, / 
not) but maildirsize in maildir.
