As distributed by UW, Alpine does not support the maildir format.
Your copy of Alpine has apparently been modified by a third party that
added maildir support, presumably via a driver in the c-client library.
Many of the individuals who make these types of modifications read this
mailing list, so I hope that whomever wrote the maildir driver that does
this will be able to answer your question.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what to eat for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed sheep contesting the vote.
