[Dovecot] --exec-mail

Most of my IMAP access is achieved by
'ssh $mailhost exec dovecot --exec-mail imap'.

I'm testing Dovecot 2.0, and this doesn't seem to work any more — and I
can't seem to work out how to make it work. The wiki page at
http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Upgrading/2.0 has no mention of it.

I looked through the git history to find the commit that broke it and
see if I could find the replacement that way, but it was the commit
entitled 'Initial commit for v2.0 master rewrite.', and wasn't
particularly edifying.

Once upon a time in the dim and distant past, I believe I used to
run /usr/libexec/dovecot/imap directly. But that doesn't set the
environment up correctly, so isn't the right way to do it... is it?
