Where's Maildir? Converting messages from qmail/Courier to Cyrus?

I'm trying to do 2 things:

  1. Migrate from qmail/Courier to Cyrus

  2. Figure out where Cyrus stores my mail

For 1. I found that qmail stores my mail in a Maildir format (one file
per email).
For 2. I see directories/files like
/var/lib/imap/user/o/otis.(seen,sub), but I'm not sure if my email is
in there, or elsewhere.  These files are binaries.

So, I'm wondering:
  - Are there any tools or scripts that would let me convert my Maildir
mail from my old qmail/Courier system to my new postfix/Cyrus system?

  - Isn't Cyrus supposed to use Maildir format, too?  Where is that
Maildir?  I did find / -type d -name Maildir and found nothing.
    (I have postfix -> lmtad -> Cyrus setup, but I don't think I have
Maildir specified in any of the config files)
