Yeah.. I guess dsync will need to handle them. I've thought about this
for a few years and always thought "hopefully I won't need to implement
that soon". :)

v2.2 dsync protocol is extensible, although the code isn't so much.
Maybe v2.3 dsync could support plugins and the acl plugin could do the
syncing.. Or maybe simply hardcode dovecot-acl file syncing as "newest
timestamp wins".
