1.0-branch Dovecot LDA doesn't do that, since it doesn't really support
parsing the message while saving it.

1.1-branch Dovecot LDA does support parsing message while saving it, but
in that case the ,W= isn't really needed because the size is saved into
cache file anyway.

I think at least Exim supports adding the ,W= to the maildir file.
