[Differential] [Request, 378 lines] D52: Create ReStructureText manpage for imapd.conf

Dear Developers and especially #imap_reviewers,
This recently pushed diff, D52, is intended to support the creation of 
rI:cyrus-imapd/man/imapd.conf.rst, which in turn can be plopped into 
rD:cyrus-docs/source/imapd/admin/configs/imapd.conf.rst to build man 
pages and online documentation.

In order to get this to work, I had to make some small changes to 
lib/imapoptions, mostly to correct non-standard comments which cause 
issues both with the existing config2man as well as with the new 
config2rst commands.

As I don't have rights to land this, I hope someone who does have those 
rights will do so, assuming it passes review.

The next issue to deal with, then, is to get config2rst added into the 
autoconf/makefile stuff, and to figure out just how we will actually 
merge imapd.conf.rst into rD, and then to merge the generated man pages 
from rD:cyrus-docs/build/man back into rI:cyrus-imapd/man.

I leave these tasks for the actual developers, rather than little old 
me. :-)

Along with D49, this should close T84.
