I guess this doesn't really answer your question, but I can confirm that
the 1.0 series of dovecot has true public folder support (you don't need
a dummy imap acct) and works with thunderbird. At least I can say it
works with Maildir format, which is probably best to avoid the locking
issues related to mbox.
