Well, the whole point of sieve, I believe, is to make it something
that an admin would want to let arbitrary users modify on their own
recognizance, and the ability to specify arbitrary programs to run
would be just *asking* to be hacked.
But I understand your desire there. At that point, I'd say the heck
with it, just use procmail and don't worry about deliver. That's what
I do, and my users are all impressed with dovecot's snappiness,
irregardless of (or despite) its indexing. In a word: don't solve a
problem that doesn't exist. :)
Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice
of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of
increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror
to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in
