but beware the dovecot internal filenames. Dovecot saves many meta-data
about the mails in the filename (like courier does, too).

I think it's much better that dovecot handles it's Maildir by itself.
So give all the mails to dovecot's delivery agent by the same way a
mailserver would do. In my opinion it's the only way to keep the
Maildir-structure consistent.
Maybe dovecot brings anything whisch reads mail from files or stdin, so
you can transport all your mail via script.
