My thoughts:

 - It should be pretty easy add new commands with plugins.

 - Unless the commands are at least becoming an accepted standard (or
possibly otherwise widely used), I won't include them in the main
Dovecot tarball. But they can be listed in the Wiki of course.

 - I'm not really interested in implementing it. I'd rather get all the
other things done that I already have in my TODO list. Also it looks
like I'm going to get paid for many of them (I'll probably write
something about this later when everything is clear).
