Just for info, I don't consider jsieve dead, just resting :) Its waiting for
our infrastructure to evolve to plug it in - IMAP and the new extended
Mailet API should do the job. I had hoped that we would get there (much)
sooner. Its entirely independant of James but as a matter of loyalty I have
always wanted to use James as the flagship integration.

Agreed. As I've said before, a mail-commons is an excellent idea for
reusable components with a clear and clean API which is James independent. I
don't believe that the Bayesian stuff meets these criteria right now.

If someone wishes to evolve it to do so, cool! Until then lets leave it
where it is.
