sieve client with ssl/tls support?

Hi List-

I'm looking for a sieve client like sieveshell but one that supports
starttls for wrapping the entire data transfer session in ssl/tls
encryption.  Does anyone know of such a client (either CLI or other)?

I've searched through the archives and found some discussions on
patching timsieved itself to allow a "sieves" port but the conclusion
was that this was a bad idea; better to patch some of the web-based
sieve clients like websieve, smartsieve, and PEAR-Net_Sieve.  Looking
over these clients, it seems that PEAR-Net_Sieve supports some safe
authentication mechanisms like CRAM-MD5 and DIGEST-MD5, but it does not
seem to support ssl/tls.

So again, does anyone know of such client software?  Pointers?
