You might be interested to learn that KMail has this. They are not yet
ad-hoc, meaning that you can say "pipe this message through..." and get a
dialog where you can enter a command, but you can create a set of filter
actions (by checking "Add this filer to the \"Apply Filter\" menu") that
can be placed in the Message->Apply Filter (singular) submenu. They can be
assigned shortcuts in the normal shortcut dialog and assigned icons in the
filter dialog. Once assigned an icon, you can add the action to the
toolbar, too. This is basically what the new antispam wizard does for you
in the upcoming KMail 1.7 to hook up SA or bogofilter into KMail.
But the feature is there in KMail 1.6 already.
