If readonly=True, it will simply not sync in that direction.
So if REMOTEIMAP1 (readonly=True) and LOCALMAILDIR (readonly=False) are
your repos, and the cache goes missing, it will:
1a) sync REMOTEIMAP1 mails to LOCALMAILDIR, adding all new messages
1b) delete all mails in LOCALMAILDIR that are not in REMOTEIMAP1 but
have a valid (>0) UID recorded. (so they are not "NEW")
As sync in the other direction will be skipped, new messages that are
really new (ie those that don't have UID=<number>,FMD5=<folderMD5> in
their file name), will simply be ignored and left alone, as far as I can
see. At least, that is what I think it would be doing without actually
