This is true, but typically RC will be able to read/write from a user's
mail directory and not from their home directly.
Procmail reads it configuration typically from a user's home directory
(~/.procmailrc) which RC wouldn't be able to write to, not at the moment
Allowing RC to write to a user's home directory opens up some other
potential security issues I'd imagine.

Perhaps there could be an option that you can enable for procmail
integration where you have to set each user's .procmailrc to be writable by
RC or something.

Interesting idea... I'm no expert in PHP, so I don't really know where to
start...  perhaps make it a feature suggestion on trac?
