The difference between the maildir/file, and the individual email in a
mailfile, seems to be that the apparent break between the files that I have
noted the possible separator marker is a 2 empty lines followed by a From
with no terminating semicolon, it really shouldn't be that hard to convert
back to mailfile. However, the mailfile messages are already contaminated
with spamassassin headers, and the 5 or 6 I looked at are also bereft of
the bare 'From so and so @ site' line, so possibly it will be more complex
than a simple cpa operation after all.

I'll have to check cyrus-IMAP out after all. Installed, but an lsof |grep
cyrus doesn't return a hint of where its working directory is. I'll search
/etc & its man page for clues.
