I read that.. but after 8 hours of trying to get it going I gave up on it.

I the debian 8 / Cyrus 2.5 stuff did not want to process the cyrus 2.4 
db files from debian 6.

You can say pretty words like: "may require support for whichever 
backend you were using" but if all you have is access to apt-get and you 
have two systems that are YEARS apart in what they have setup.. how do 
you do this?  Tell me the apt-get install command to run so that  
ctl_cyrusdb -r works or it's just words.
