Like, maybe a tiny web server which just prints a form asking for a mail file and a sieve script, and then it runs sieve-script and prints the output of that? I wonder how other people do that.

Better would be to let them submit a message from a folder, or all messages in a folder.  I.e., "run Sieve on folder 'TestSieve'", then users can just drag messages there and test it (or, if I had that functionality, copy them).

Just a thought.
