Since cyrus currently does not allow this, I had to switch to a CRON 
based solution.

I use two files for each "state" we wish to have.

The script file to set the new sieve rules:
cd /opt/auto-sieve/user at
sieveshell --user=user at --password=XXXXXX 
--authname=user at localhost

And the file with the commands to put the sieve file to the server
put freitag.script
activate freitag

And finally the sieve script for friday.

With best regards
