You can ask as long as you like. If noone is writing the code to parse sieve
scripts into tokens, this won't happen.

This is not possible, at least timsieved only allows for one active script
at a time.

This might be an interesting solution. But I remember vaguely that this was
discussed and dropped in the past regarding the procmail driver. Perhaps
you'll find something in the archives.

Such a list exist already, if you have IMP installed too.
