I would use 'mailutil', coming from UW-imapd distribution. The general
idea is to transfer mails from an IMAP server to local 'mx' format.
The 'mx' format works like 'mh', so the data files are fully readable
in the Gnus nnml backend after rebuilding its databases using 
`M-x nnml-generate-nov-databases'.

- the command I use is:

mailutil transfer -v -m append '{localhost/notls/norsh/user=niko}' 

- then I remove the mx index files:

find /home/niko/Mail -type f -name .mxindex -exec rm -f {} \;

- then I rebuild the nnml databases in Gnus.

Hope this helps,
