I think either would be fine. If there were a pure-Python implementation of the language, we could possibly consider enabling it by default. With a Python extension module talking to libSieve, we might want to make it optional. But it's probably way too early to make that decision.
Mostly I'm trying to see if anybody would be interested in doing a little exploration hacking along these lines. If so, I will of course help you get started; ideally, you'd hack together a Bazaar branch that pulled in the appropriate libraries and did Something Cool with them just as a proof-of-concept.
