Here's what I use on my mailservers:

mailbox {
  # Keep user mail in maildir format, mailboxes are arranged in an
  # indexed directory hierarchy with nesting level 2:
  # Create new mailboxes in maildir format as well. It is needed, among
  # others, for IMAP `CREATE' command/
  mailbox-type "maildir";

No problem, use this:

  mailbox-pattern "maildir:/home/${user}/Maildir";

The docs are largely outdated.  The parts regarding configuration are
out of whack completely.  However, the description of the utilities
(Chapter "Programs"), and the Sieve library (Chapter "Sieve Language")
remains mostly accurate.  There are also considerable changes in the
mailutils libraries.  In general, I'd recommend to read the NEWS file
first: I attempted to tersely document all the changes there.  Should
you need any clarifications, please, do not hesitate to ask.

I'll try to bring the docs in synch with the actual state as soon as I
have some free time for that.
