I may be a little out of date, but since I assume altering quota support
would mean altering vdelivermail as well - can we 'add dovecot support'
into vdelivermail?

I have slow large POP mailboxes - due to Dovecot's indexes/uid
gathering.  I can't replace vdelivermail with dovecot's deliver to fix
that because of how I've done some things.  As I understand it, another
possible way to speed POP up is to add the ,W=<vsize> to Maildir
filenames which I don't currently have done.

It seems the vsize option could be a quick fix/implementation, but
updating indexes in the long run would be great.

I wonder if the index part of Dovecot is modular... I wouldn't want to
cross post - at least not at this point.
