If it's the same architecture and versions of cyrus and db are the same,
it should work just fine. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. If
it isn't the same architecture (for example intel to sparc), I'm not
sure if you would be able to simply copy database files over. In that
case you'd probably need to dump db files into text files, and reimport
Hmmm... BTW, how does one dumps and restores database to/from text
files if skiplist is used?
