This is how Courier IMAP sets things up, though... all mailboxes are
sub-mailboxes of your main Maildir.
You could use patched UW IMAPD with Maildir support if you'd prefer to
use a more conventional structure - I'm not aware of any other IMAP
servers which support Maildir.
If you don't require Maildir, you may simply want to use mbox instead.
