[Dovecot] MasterUser and old rev of Dovecot (0.99.14)

I need to migrate an old mail server running Dovecot (0.99.14) to a
new server running Dovecot (1.0.7; as shipped with CentOS 5.2).
My plan was to use the imapsync utility as this will "seamlessly" do
the conversion from mbox to maildir between the boxes as well.
I've got the MasterUser authentication working fine on the new host
and was just about to start getting MasterUsers working on the old host.
I noticed that the old .99 version dovecot.conf seems to have a mildly
different syntax from 1.0 dovecot.conf. In particular a lot of the
directives do not use braces and such.
Is the .99 dovecot.conf file essentially able to deal with the same
sort of syntax as outlined in the MasterUsers wiki page? [ http://wiki.dovecot.org/Authentication/MasterUsers
I just wanted to bounce this off you guys before I started messing
with a live system. ;)
Thanks in advance.
