folder pointing to another IMAP server?

I don't think you've really given us enough information.
Are both servers cyrus? I understand from your posting that
at least one will be.

I have multiple servers configured in my email client ( Mozilla )
but they are all cyrus. That shouldn't be a requirement however.
The drawback for most people will be how to configure their email 
program to do this, ie, its a user/client education issue. Connecting to 
two or more mail servers with one client program may confuse some

We usually move peoples mail when setting putting their account
on a new server. There is a short interruption in their accounts
ability to recieve mail and thier ability to read it. Letting people 
know what is going on however greatly mitigates questions and concerns.
