I suspect, then, (2) is my problem; I think the db's are v3 format, not v4. I
had hoped that db4 could at least read v3 :-(

What is my best course of action to get a v3-based imapd that I can use to
convert to v4? Can I have v3 and v4 in the same executables, or do I have to
use two sets with, e.g., skiplist as the intermediary?
