That software is already written and tested, it is the sieve plugin. If
you're willing to write, test and run a complete new piece of software,
you might as well replace dovecot with a sieve enabled version of the
same package you're running now, and putting your current configuration
in place.

Anyhow, maybe sieve is already available in your current package. I'm
not familiar with (contents of) ubuntu packages, so maybe someone more
knowledgeable in this area can step up?
