I think this would be great. Personally I found the whole concept of having
an entirely different protocol to manage sieve scripts a bit bewildering
when a few simple additions to IMAP would have done it. I guess someone
thought it was a sufficiently distinct problem space...

Anyway, now that the ANNOTATE extension provides more aribtrary meta-data
abilities, I think being able to set user sieve scripts by it would be
great. Of course interactions with managesieve could be tricky, but still, I
think it's definitely a worthwhile goal.
