> does the IMAP spec specify how large a UUID can be?

UUIDs aren't part of the IMAP spec. It's an addition to cyrus to help 
replication. By default, there's no way to access UUIDs via IMAP at all 
since they're not part of the IMAP spec.

The UUID size chosen was done by David Carter when he implemented 
replication. It would be possible to change them again, but it would mean 
changing the cyrus.index file format and upgrading all cyrus.index files. 
Seemed easier not to do that.
