good point. most GUI's will only need to understand their own Sieve code,


When a program is about to parse a sieve script, it cannot know whether that script was written by itself. Right? That's more or less a design decision. There's nothing like the postscript Creator field in sieve.

Because of that, a program cannot enable or disable its 'parse existing sieve script' command depending on who wrote the sieve script.

but it is important that the constructs we provide lend themselves easily to common idioms.

Agree wholeheartedly.
