[ingo] Writing procmail script to a file

I am trying to generate procmail script using Ingo and then write the script 
to a file. Here is what I can't figure out:

1. I can't seem to have both the procmail script generation, and IMAP client 
side filtering. I played around with config/backends.php, and there I 
basically have the stanza:

/* IMAP Example */
$backends['imap'] = array(
    'driver' => 'vfs',
    'preferred' => 'mydomain.org',
    'hordeauth' => true,
    'params' => array(),
    'script' => 'imap',
    'scriptparams' => array()

/* Procmail Example */  
$backends['procmail'] = array(
    'driver' => 'vfs',
    'preferred' => 'mydomain.org',
    'hordeauth' => true,
    'params' => array(
        // Hostname of the VFS server
        'hostspec' => 'ftp.example.com',
        // Name of the procmail config file to write
        'filename' => '.procmailrc',
        // Port of the VFS server
        'port' => 21,
        // The VFS driver to use
        'vfstype' => 'file',

In this case, only the IMAP client side feature is enabled in Ingo. 
If I comment out that stanza, and change the $backends['procmail'] to 
$backends['imap'] for the "Procmail Example" (and keep everything else the 
same), then I can see the link/Icon "Scripts" in my Ingo, but cannot apply 
the rule I created using IMAP client side filtering. 
So how do I enable both ? what am I missing ?

Please if this is in the FAQ or docs, point me to the URL and I apologize for 
missing it (I've looked there and the docs but the docs for Ingo seems 

2. I cannot write the generated procmail script to a file. I changed 'vfstype' 
to 'file' (as you can see above) and I get " ... VFS type "file" not yet 
implemented" message when I click on "Activate Script". All I want to do is 
just write the generated procmail script to a place writable by the httpd 
process as a file. It seems odd that FTP is supported by VFS but a simple 
file writing is not. Or am I missing something ?

Thank you in advance for any help.
