The migration script generates the files using uidlist format "Version 1".
While Dovecot 1.1.x normally uses "Version 3" format, it can also read the
older formats (to maintain backward compability), and thus auto-convert it
to the newest version.

FWIW, we have used version 1.1.7 of the script for our Couier to Dovecot
1.1.x migration, and it worked well, execpt for cases where Couier's
uidlist was too old.
