Its not solution, it's workaround :)
SIEVE is simply awesome;  I run my own Cyrus instance on Linode and my
employer uses Cyrus - so SIEVE is how I accomplish most of my filtering.
Server side filtering just makes good sense.
I'm not a C-hacker;  but is anyone else interested in possibly posting a
bounty for this bug on one of the bounty services?  *Maybe* we could get
someone interested.  I'd be willing to put up $100 US.
Sounds like nice project for Google's Summer Of Code if anyone wants to
sponsor it.
I cant try to implement it without sponsoring. Probably not in C but in
some higher level language like Vala or Genie.

Is it possible to develop a *working* evolution plugin in a language
other than C?  There was some noise about being able to extend Evolution
via Mono [.NET] (which was exciting!) but that fizzled.
But GNOME-Do did [does?] have an Evolution plugin written in Mono [I

There are evolution-mono-plugins and evolution-python-plugins packages
in most distributions; but I'm not aware of anything built on them. 

Given that GObject is well wrapped in PyGTK Python might be a good

Only thing i doubt about is how easy it will be
to convert evolution filters to sieve scripts.

I don't think converting existing filters would be required, or even
desirable.  Server-side filters are account-specific which Evolution
filters really aren't, server-side filters are also different in some
ways.  If a plugin just added a tab to IMAP account(s) that allowed
filters to be created/modified/removed I think that would be sufficient
- or right clicking on an IMAP account and selecting edit-filters.
