If you're using dovecot in sid, you should have noticed that it's
migrated to the conf.d/* style configuration. Put any modifications YOU
make into a separate file (say, 99-local.conf) and revert the upstream
files to as shipped. That way, when you upgrade, the conffiles will get
upgraded cleanly and your configuration will override the debian
defaults. The hazard of doing that, though, is that if a configuration
variable is removed or your config becomes invalid, you won't be told.
