It will work, but it is not quite correct because I can change hierarchy 
separator. Why 1st plus is converted but others are not?
I made a small patch for this and it runs fine for ~4 months at my 
server (~3200 mboxes).
If someone except me needs this functionality I can post it to this list 
or somewhere else.

Best wishes,
