Timed Actions in Sieve

We've been having a chat about how useful it would be to have timed  
actions in sieve: so that a vacation message could be set up for a  
duration which would automatically revert, so that a forwarding could  
be set up for the duration of a short-term project, etc, etc.  The  
naive way is to add support to the sieve interface of choice (the  
squirrelmail plugin in our case) to handle deferred actions, but I  
can think of all sorts of security problems with that.  Another would  
be a means to auto-generate regexps to match on Date: headers, but  
that's really tacky.  The full solution would be to have the current  
time available in sieve scripts, to then match on.  Has anyone else  
thought about this area?
