Invoking the spam checker on the sieve script

Is it advisable to invoke an spam checker from the sieve script, and then,
once the message is filtered, decide if should be moved to a certain spam
A bit more context on why I'm considering this:
I'm just a geek who wants to handle his own mail, but not a great experience
as a system administrator. I don't have any corporate setup, just a simple VPS
with me as the only user.
Previously I fetched all my mail through POP, and in the client of my PC I
moved (lots of) mailing list traffic to its folders. Then, for those remaining
messages (and only those remaining) I passed the spam filter and moved to spam
folder. That's a significant saving since I have many mailing list
subscriptions, and now I'm even using rss2email, so I have lots of email that
is not spam.
I moved to IMAP and my filters are server side with sieve, but I don't have
spam filtering yet. I thought I could replicate the setup easily, but it seems
nobody is doing that, and everyone has the mail already scored when it reaches
sieve. Seems like the "extprograms" extension would be a fit, but again, nobody
seems to mention on documentation, so I'm fearing I'm probably wrong.
Thank you very much!
