Technical Summary

This document describes the "ihave" extension to the Sieve email
filtering language.  The "ihave" extension provides a means to write
scripts that can take advantage of optional Sieve features but can
still run when those optional features are not available.  The
extension also defines a new error control command intended to be
used to report situations where no combination of available
extensions satisfies the needs of the script.

Working Group Summary

There were some discussions about whether the ihave test should only 
enable an extension for the if block it is used in, or whether it 
should enable the extension till the end of the script. The latter 
was chosen due to perceived ease of implementability and this represents 
rough consensus of the WG.
