Transferring e-mail filters from iceape to icedove

I've been using Iceape Mail and Newgroup in Debian stable as my main e-mail client. However, I'm getting tired of it. I'm thinking about moving to Icedove. Does anyone know if there is a way I can export the e-mail filters from Iceape to Icedove?

I have a fair amount of filters setup to re-direct email to their designated folders, and I don't want to rebuild all of that again.

If you do a file search in the hidden folder containing iceape's configuration (I use Thunderbird and the config folder is called "~/.thunderbird") look for something called msgFilterRules.dat (or something along those lines). You'll have a separate one for each account you have listed in Iceape.
