  Sieve does most of what procmail does and is what I would recommend
for use with cyrus-imapd.  It's on the standards track (if not already a
standard) to boot.  See RFC3028.

  Condemned?  A bit harsh, now, aren't we?  Point taken, however.  Cyrus
imapd is overkill and overly complex for small installations but highly
suitable, IMO, for larger installations.
