Cyrus 2.1 can do this through sieve. There are plugins for squirrelmail that
will allow your users to easily write their sieve scripts (in a
"wizard-like" interface), for example.

There will be no such thing in the filesystem. You will have an INBOX, and
as many subfolders as you want (and you can have them as children of INBOX,
or at top-level).

It means you either ditch procmail and switch to sieve filters, or that you
must configure your MTA to deliver to procmail instead of cyrus, and use
cyrdeliver to send the email from procmail to cyrus. Which is much slower
than simply delivering it to cyrus and using sieve in the first place.
