Question about bulk mailbox transfers between backends

Hi folks,

We're currently running a Cyrus 2.3.8 murder and are looking to bulk move 
several hundred mailboxes from one backend server to another (running either 
2.3.8 or 2.3.14).

We've done successful tests of single transfers using cyradm's xfer command, but 
I'm wondering if anyone's already written a script for this, before we set out 
to re-invent the wheel?

I've been searching the list archives and I've come across some threads 
suggesting the use of imapsync, but I'm unfamiliar with that utility. Any 

Best regards,
