email interface into a module?

The project that I am working on uses a fetchmail daeman to fetch the
bugs from the email server, and then calls procmail to run email_in.pl.
It is pretty neat and can be done. However it is run inside the
firewall, so security wasn't a major issue. The email password can be
exposed on the internet though. Procmail supports conditional parsing
every time when it is called.
