We have about 170k mailboxes in total, split between 2 backends.  The last 
time I had to do the initial push was several years ago when we converted 
our first standalone Cyrus server into a backend.  There were probably 
fewer mailboxes at that time.

I remember it taking around 30 minutes?  My memory is kinda vague on this, 
sorry.  Berkeley DB was quite a bit faster.
