This should be quite simple to do.  I'll look at it when I get more
time.  Theoretically it's possible to read part of the file until we
find the "version"-bits.  From that it should be possible to know if
it's IMAP and MBOX.  There is also another way, using the filename,  the
summary for MBOX is named "mbox.ev-summary" and the IMAP one is named
just "summary". 

However, what I REALLY think are missing are:
* Some way to list all your mailboxes (so that dashboard can ask which
ones to use for the backend)
* Some way to map between those mailboxes and their summary-files

This shouldn't be much harder but I will not look at it until I've got a
working 1.5 running on my laptop. If nobody looked at it before than
I'll do it.

I think this can be done with the same code as the "version"-stuff as

But, do we really want to support 1.4?  1.5 is comming out soon and
dashboard is probably further away anyway :)

Alright, I'm flying across another part of Australia the 13:th. I'll see
what I can do. :)
