Hi Bron, Mark,

I've finished going through cyrus-imapd-2.3.16-autosieve-0.6.0.diff and
parts of cyrus-imapd-2.3.16-autocreate-0.10-0.diff. I may take a look at
integrating CRC32 so as to remove the dependency. Anyway, my github
account is now set up at to enable
tracking of my changes (still making baby steps in a git world).
