Ah ok. Actually enotify xmpp is what I would like, but I couldn't get it
compiled on a debian system with dovecot 2.0.8 and pigeonhole 0.2.2.

*Compile against installed dovecot* (attempt 1)
$ ./configure --with-dovecot=/usr/local/lib/dovecot/
Pigeonhole Sieve headers not found from
/home/edward/pigeonhole-enotify-xmpp-56ad0f423143 and they are not installed
in the Dovecot include path, use --with-pigeonhole=PATH to give path to
Pigeonhole sources or installed headers.
configure: error: pigeonhole not found

*Compile against installed dovecot* (attempt 2)
$ ./configure --with-dovecot=/usr/local/lib/dovecot/
$ make
make[2]: Entering directory

Continues on but more errors

*Compiled against source*
$ ./configure --with-dovecot=/home/edward/dovecot-2.0.8/
$ make
ntfy-xmpp.c: In function 'ntfy_xmpp_load':
ntfy-xmpp.c:105: warning: passing argument 1 of 'sieve_sys_warning' from
incompatible pointer type
ntfy-xmpp.c:105: error: too few arguments to function 'sieve_sys_warning'

After that, I tried to go the script way :P
