You can get reconstruct to work by simply "touch"ing the cyrus.header file
and giving it the correct ownership and permissions.
I used to recover lost email from backups by restoring the message files
and the cyrus.header file into a new folder, but then I realized that the
mailbox unique id would also be duplicated. After some playing around I
realized that reconstruct will rebuild all the cyrus.* files if you have
an empty cyrus.header file.
