I support this concept :-)

   (I have an LDA whose scripting language includes an embedded SIEVE
    syntax, and I do plan to make it dovecot-friendly once I get up some
    more steam for another round of working on it.  See www.mvmf.org if
    you are curious; apologies if it's rude to mention it here again.)
