Huh?  I can run cyrdeliver as a normal user fine.  Though to deliver to
other mailboxes than the top INBOX, I have to use the -a $USER option,
plus the -m option, of course.

As to the rest of what you are trying to do, I use procmail, but that's
probably not going to let you do the date processing you want.

If you're willing to use Perl rather than Python, I'm pretty sure I've
seen some mail filtering modules out on CPAN.
