improved_mboxlist_sort option

Historically, the mailbox sorting code in Cyrus used ascii to sort, 
which would occasionally cause odd problems with mailboxes containing 
non-alphabetic characters.

Not too long ago, Ken added some code to deal with this problem but he 
didn't want to force it on everyone and risk breaking a ton of stuff, so 
he made it a configurable option.

If you set "improved_mboxlist_sort: 1" it uses Ken's improved sorting code.

I'm curious whether anyone is running this in production.
