Up to my understanding ingo can manage and activate only its own script.

No matter if you've other scripts in sieve_dir [1], ingo won't see them.

Maybe this choice was made to support in a uniform way even the other
type of filters (maildrop, procmail...).

I was planning to hack into it if the task doesn't require a major
redesign of other stuff behind the curtains but I suspect it will since
from an ingo point of view each sieve rule is a filter so adding one
layer more may require a DB schema change that will surely impact the
other filter methods.

Roundcube has a more sophisticated interface to sieve filters but it
doesn't support so many type of filters (just sieve and a "client-side
filter plugin"). I doubt it does with a uniform interface.

There are other more specialized web sieve clients but I didn't check if
they can work with dovecot or they were designed for a specific webmail.

I'd prefer to have different UI for different kind of filters and be
able to offer a more advanced interface to users (family), but that's
just me and my small user base.

eg. procmail, maildrop and sieve support variables but filtering
directly through IMAP doesn't. Making a uniform UI means a) a lot of
work or b) choosing the LCD.
