[Dovecot] I changed the separator from . to / and it still seems to work.

Just as an experiment I changed the separator from . to / restarted dovecot (v2.1.1).

When adding an existing account with lots of mail folders to thunderbird everything still seems to work. 

My directory layout is like this:


I added a new folder to the horde mailing using thunderbird list and got an extra folder 


Does this mean the separator has nothing to do with the . in the directory names and I am safe to switch saparators without having to do anything else?
