[patch] mailbox select option for ipurge

Hello Ken,

here's a repost of a patch from 2005 that somehow got lost on cyrus-devel:

The patch still works and applies fine to cyrus-imapd 2.3.12p2



I needed a way to purge only a specific mailbox using the ipurge utility.
"-f" wasn't the way to go as it's recursive.

Please have a look at the attached patch. The new option was first called
"-F mailbox" but I can happen too easy that you specify "-f mailbox"
and delete all your mail, so I changed it to "-M mailbox".

The verbose output was also improved to show which folders were skipped.
The patch was developed for cyrus-imapd 2.2.12 and applies cleanly to HEAD.

Is this mailinglist or bugzilla the right place to submit patches?

Best regards,
Thomas Jarosch
