I suppose it _might_ be possible to store an entire script as an 
annotation, but I'm not going to do it.  I'm not convinced that this 
belongs in IMAP.

Its already part of 2.1 and 2.2.  In 2.1 you have to explicitly 
configure --enable-annotatemore and then an 'info' command in cyradm 
will give you what you want:

cyrus.andrew.cmu.edu> info inbox
   partition: u1
   server: mail2.andrew.cmu.edu

Note that the 2.1 code only supports these two read-only mailbox 
annotations hasn't been updated to the latest ANNOTATEMORE syntax.  I'm 
not sure we will bother to do any further development on ANNOTATEMORE in 
2.1 (but I'll defer to Rob on this).

In 2.2 ANNOTATEMORE support is enabled by default because we have added 
support for read-write annotations, some of which are needed by nntpd.
