I'd suggest writing a script that detects what files are mboxes and  
move all of them under ~/mail, and make Dovecot serve only mailboxes  
in ~/mail. Then add enough hidden namespaces to make existing client  
configurations work.

It would be possible to write a plugin that filters the LIST output,  
but I think that's way too much trouble and kind of kludgy.
