messages" from UW-IMAP ?

Many of the scripts that do the conversion remove this message.
I used perfect_maildir.pl to do my conversion. It was more or less
dead-on, but had the habbit of marking some unread messages incorrectly
as "read" after the conversion.
I've attached a patch which "fixed" this in my case. This patches
against perfect_maildir.pl v0.2.
