That UW migration page talks about UW+mbox -> Dovecot+mbox migration. If
you're going to migrate to maildir too, I don't see any point in keeping
the .mailboxlist filename. The only reason why you would keep it with
mboxes is to have the migration completely transparent without any
conversion at all required.
