Sieve-specific debug levels:

trace1 - print parse tree before optimization trace2 - print parse tree after optimization trace3 - print parser traces trace4 - print tests and actions being executed trace9 - print each Sieve instruction being executed

Compatibility debug flags: g - main parser traces T - mailutils traces (same as --debug-level=,sieve/.trace0-trace1) P - network protocols (same as --debug-level=,sieve/.=prot) t - sieve trace (same as --debug-level=,sieve/.=trace4) i - sieve instructions trace (same as --debug-level=,sieve/.=trace9)
