[Dovecot] Import from Evolution

I need to import the mail database generated by the evolution mail
reader into dovecot.  Evolution stores its mail in maildir format (fully
standards compatible, I think); I would be using the maildir format in
dovecot.  Is there anything in the wiki, etc. explaining exactly how to 
do this?

Why do this?  Evolution is hopelessly broken, and is not likely to be 
fixed in the forseeable future, and I would like to keep my mails in
maildir form.  Reviews of kmail are very bad, and thunderbird uses the
mbox format for storage.

Thanks in advance - jon
