Okay, that was a bogus claim.  Turns out translatesieve assumes that one 
needs adjust for both altnamespace AND unixhierarchysep.  If you have 
already been using altnamespace, it borks up the sieve scripts 
mercilessly.  This requires a complete rewrite, which I've undertaken, 
so it won't be getting committed anytime soon. Hopefully this weekend :-)
