In the case of the cyrus.* files, I'm not sure if anything apart from
the datestamp was mangled.

Nevertheless, most of my users have all of their email (with only a few
mysterious disappearances), but because we lost flags, some have more
than what they had before the restore.  So most of them are just
re-deleting them. ;-)

Thanks for your help.  I'll try writing that script.
