Ok, I would avoid using maildir++ layout with listescape for now.  I
confirmed that it could support folder names including dots without
listescape by using LAYOUT=fs.

> Also you could make FS layout almost reserved-folder-name free by adding e.g. :DIRNAME=Mails to your mail_location. Now the only reserved name is "Mails", and you can of course use any other name that users are highly unlikely to use (and remember that folder names are case sensitive).

Yes, I've learnt about DIRNAME from the dovecot wiki.  Currently that
config could be the best for LAYOUT=fs.

Thank you for the valuable information and suggestion!

Good.  Looking forward to seeing it.  I also expect some of mailbox
migration tools to be available :-) (dsync can do it?).
