As far as I know there are no documented extensions like that. The UW-IMAP
server advertizes an extension called "SCAN", which appears to do that;
however it appears to be a private server extension, a brief net search
shows that its publication was withdrawn, so as of now it is only a private
server extension only, and as far as I know only pine knows how to use it.

I know you specified Cyrus. In UW it took compiling in the directory name
to be searched into the IMAP binary.
