Sounds like you want Dovecot LDA (Local Delivery Agent)

http://wiki.dovecot.org/LDA

It has the following features:

# Mailbox indexing during mail delivery, quicker mailbox access
# Quota enforcing by plugin
# Sieve language support

* Mail filtering
* Mail forwarding
* Vacation auto-reply

And sieve is a mail filtering language, not a script to process
exisiting mailboxes. (Fastmail has excellent examples and info
http://wiki.fastmail.fm/index.php/SieveExamples)

It works in a very similar way to procmail and is implemented in Dovecot
LDA.

I use LDA with Dovecot on etch and i'm very happy with it.
