Pushing SCCCP out of the way isn't going to work very well... I suggest
getting a new port (x) and using these rules:

Clients MUST try port x first. If a client gets connection refused on
right port number, it MAY try 2000, but in that case it should watch out
for SCCCP. Sieve banners look like <example>, and always contain a line
starting with "SIEVE " and one starting with "IMPLEMENTATION ". SCCCP
banners look like <example>, and always <dan?>.

Instead of standardizing a multi-port search procedure, I suggest we
standardize the use of DNS SRV records to discover managesieve servers.

Excellent idea. I strongly support doing this.

The latest ManageSieve draft already does that ;-).
