I don't get what you are saying here.  Mutt doesn't really need IMAP
since fetchmail already takes care of it.

Right -- fetchmail.  However, as I said, too many people would
complain too loudly if the current IMAP code in mutt was removed.

I don't see 'sieve' anywhere in "apt-cache search".  I did read the
RFC though.

How to shoot yourself in the foot with Java:

You find that Microsoft and Sun have released imcompatible class
libraries both implementing Gun objects. You then find that although
there are plenty of feet objects implemented in the past in many other
languages, you cannot get access to one. But seeing as Java is so cool,
you dont care and go around shooting anything else you can find.
