Hi Mike!

Thank you for information! That's what I need to know (and what I've sopposed).

So perhaps an important playground for me. (But a very difficulty one - unless, 
except the PHP sieve tools already have rule parsing functions inclunded. But I 
don't think so - however I haven't looked for that until now.)

I like a solution wich is controlable by different tools/frontends at the same 
time. That's my fundamental impulse to look for processing existing rules. (But 
even Mulberry 3.0.0 [Windows] isn't able to handle server based scripts

That's surely true. But a overwrite warning would be nice.

Please don't remove this later! It's a nice feature for power users or such who 
want to learn something.
But don't permit users to change script text - most of them are too stupid or

Fine! Perfect for sealed server! (Didn't know about this sieve feature. - So 
much to get learned... Give me time!)
