Or you could write a small script to create it. How it would have to
look like would depend on where you can fetch a list of users from and
where exactly your sieve scripts are kept, but basically, what you would
do is (based on 2.2.12):

- create your global sieve script.
- use sievec to compile it:
  sievec -C /etc/imapd.conf sievescript sievescript.bc
- link sievescript.bc into that users sieve directory as defaultbc
  I have "sievedir: /data/shared/cyrus/sieve" in my imapd.conf, so that
  link would have to be in /data/shared/cyrus/sieve/i/
  for my email address used for this post. for user at do.main, it would be
  for user at non-virtual.domain, it would be .../sieve/u/user/defaultbc
Make sure link and linked file are readable by your cyrus processes (so
usually by the cyrus user, possibly in a chroot)
