Bron and I are discussing this as we speak. This feature will probably
not be in the 3.x series, but in a new 4.x series. I hope to have some
running code by the end of 2018. The ultimate goal is to make mailbox
renames an atomic operation of nothing more than updating mailboxes.db
entries in a single transaction. No moving of data on disk should be
needed beyond updating cyrus.header with the current mailbox name. In
other words, mailbox names will be reduced to meta-data.
