Its a different index file.  A more comprehensive one.  The basic  
cyrus index file contains some header information -- enough for most  
mail clients to do what they need to do.  The squat index file  
contains a lot more.  My experience has found the squat files end up  
being about 1/10th the size of your total amount of mailbox data...
