The doc now has this:

The subject of the mail must be set to the UID of the object. (*)

(*) This can be used by some clients for searching but it is not 
recommended to implement clients that way; searching on the IMAP ID is 
much faster when it's possible.

So it doesn't really help me. The SID is the important key for me. This 
is the key I get from an incoming update and need to match with an 
email in the calendar folder. Also, I don't understand the footnote 
about searching on the IMAP ID. What is that supposed to mean? It 
doesn't help me looking up the right event without sifting through all 

I need the SID to be in something I can access via IMAP SEARCH. 
Currently I do $imap->search('SUBJECT "' . $sid . '"');

Maybe we can allow the subject to contain "UID SID"?
