Ouch... I missed that the doc says
"When configured to use one (or both) of the options below"
and i also find the right google keys to find out this post:

So it seems that i can use both namespaces at the same time!

About sieve scripts if my
   sieve         cmd="timsieved" listen="" prefork=0

points to the "altnamespace: no" config it seems to me that there is no 
need to convert all my users sieve scripts.

I'm right?
