Yeah, it still does.

Not precisely - I had a play with it, but it's languished for a while.
I had hoped to do it for 2.4, but the priority was getting the underlying
mailbox models done.

If Kolab already has a patch I'd definitely like to start with that.
Jeroen - do you have one?  What state is it in?

Yes, there certainly is.  I want to add CONDSTORE support to the
annotations DB at the same time (at least the HIGHESTMODSEQ on the
mailbox at the time a particular annotation was last touched - and
bump the HIGHESTMODSEQ too) so that replication can transfer them
