Defensiveness I'm sure.  That and I would be a lot happier if Cyrus was using
the principles from:

and used some sort of consistent naming scheme for internal names and user
visible names so you could tell at a glance which one you were looking at and
be see at a glance which one was being used.

I'd also be significantly happier if they weren't the same for the trivial
case of non-domain-split non-unix-sep mailboxes, because then there wouldn't
be the high risk of having the wrong style processing code still look right
in basic testing.
