Worth noting that the procmail tips page at 

    http://www.procmail.org/jari/pm-tips.html

mentions Lua as a possible replacement for the procmail language (see the
end of question 3.5).  That item was presumably added about two years ago,
so I tend to think it's either very hard to do or didn't generate enough
steam in the procmail community.  If such a thing was possible with Lua, it
would likely be possible with Python as well.  Anyone for "pluggable
brains"?
