I take it all back. We did this a while back, and it's the path to great
sadness.  Directly editing the file in place means we can't auto-replicate
it, can't add CRC checks on the contents, etc.

The files on disk are internal format files, not to be fiddled with
directly.  Use an API.  Now the lack of a good command to copy a file
into place, enable it, etc.  I'm sold on that.  A command line tool
to install a new sieve file for a user would be handy.

But no direct editing of files on disk please.
