Message body searches shouldn't be all that much faster with Dovecot
though. Actually I wouldn't even be surprised if they were somewhat
slower. I know Dovecot uses 3x more CPU time to perform the searches
than UW-IMAP, so there is a lot of room for improvement.
With message header searches it's faster though, because the headers
are stored in cache files.
