Well, the discussion was about spam filtering, not filtering in general, and handling spam filtering from the client side is much easier than handling a general filtering mechanism.

For more general filtering, I've done something similar to what (it sounds like) you have done, although I didn't involve squirrelmail or sieve.  To create the configuration I parse the filtering rules out of the persisted configuration in $HOME/.sylpheed-2.0.  So, there isn't an additional gui in this scheme.
