filter languages are quite an interesting topic

sieve would be reasonable applicable (and it's probably worth looking
at even if another approach is picked int the end). it's syntax is a
little unintuitive but AIUI it's used by several BigCo SMTP servers
and some CMS so it can't be that bad. mostly, they wrap a AJAX web
application around it.

a proof-of-concept using apache jsieve and sieve as the filter
language should be quick and easy to do
