But the front-end should be able to tell the user what will happen before
the user commits to some action.  Then, as someone has already suggested,
Balsa would have to interface to the procmailrc files itself, which I don't
think is a clean solution.

No, what I had imagined was that Balsa would have the _rules_ for
filtering, and could execute those rules, per user command, on the imap
folders remotely.

Also, can procmail remotely manage IMAP folders and resort messages without
downloading them?
