> Changelog v0.3.0:
>  * Renamed sieve_global_path setting to sieve_default for clarity. Old

>   sieve_max_redirects to 0 now means that redirect is disallowed in
>   stead of unlimited. Default value remains four.
>  * Fixed interaction of Sieve include extension with ManageSieve. It is
>   updated to match new requirements in the draft include

>  * Updated RFC2822 header field body verification to exclude

>  + Completed sieve-filter tool to a useful state. The sieve-filter tool

>   script.
>  + Implemented the Sieve editheader extension. It is now possible to

>  + ManageSieve: added support for reading quoted and literal strings as
>   a stream. Fixes support for handing large SASL responses (analogous
>   to similar changes in Dovecot). It is now also allowed to use a
>   quoted string for the  PUTSCRIPT script argument.
>  + Added code to cleanup tmp directory in Sieve storage directory
>   (sieve_dir) every once in a while.
>  + Added support for substituting the entire message during Sieve
>   processing. This is used for the filter action provided by the new
>   sieve_extprograms plugin (provided separately for now). The filter
>   action allows passing the message through an external program.
>  + Added support for restricting certain Sieve language extensions to
>   (admin-controled) global scripts. Restricted extensions can be
>   configured using the new sieve_global_extensions setting. This is
>   particularly useful for some of the Dovecot-specific (plugin-based)
>   Sieve extensions, that can be somewhat hazardous when under direct
>   control of users (e.g. sieve_extprograms).
