By weird coincidence, I've been hacking on one lately, in Scheme.
If there's interest, I'll post something here when it's vaguely
usable. (I wasn't going to bother the Lisp folks with it, but...)

By the way, the "filtering" (at least, not the kind I'm interested in)
wasn't the hard part. Most of the messiness has had to do with interacting
with the rest of the mail environment, especially playing the same style
of locking as the other programs which append to, alter, or truncate
mailbox files.
