yeah - I have pretty much given up on the sieveusehomedir option since
just putting the file there doesn't do much - it still has to be
processed by sieveshell or some sieve process to bytecode it. This makes
the location of the file less relevant - but since you can script the
sieveshell stuff, I suppose you could put a script in the users home
directory and run a shell script that invokes sieveshell in the users
name, put (pulls it in in sieveshell lingo) activates it and bails
