A few comments:

Thanks for your comments, but I don't think that we should talk about 
new features in managesieve such as those you detailed in this thread 
_now_. That opens all sorts of cans of worms as anyone tries to push 
his or her pet feature.

managesieve is implemented at least in the Cyrus server suite and at 
least Mulberry and KDE have client implementations for this protocol. 
It's not that we start from scratch here. Some things you asked for 
might be nice to have - but as an _extension_. Others, like supporting 
different script languages might never be implemented. And there's 
certainly no room to debate whether size literals are to be used or not 
- they are already.


It seems that the only thing worse than being an enemy of the US is
being a close friend and ally.
