Hmm, Sieve is sort of extensible, I'd suggest to look at the 
multiple-Sieve-script problematic like

as if all Sieve scripts had be written into one file, e.g. like C's 
#include preprocessor directive.

This is simple to understand follow after.

Then one extends the language by some nifty command, say "skip to next 
file", used instead of "keep" (or have a command like, "set keep skips to 
next file" to modify keep's normal behaviour).
