fdm as a replacement for procmail?

I was in the process of setting up Procmail to sort my mail on the
server itself rather than just having the mail client do it. However, as
I was searching for a way to activate procmail from my MTA _IF_ they
have a .procmailrc file in their home directory, I came across an email
reputed to be from Procmail's author, who said the project is dead and
it should not be used because numerous bugs have been found that are not
corrected. Further reading showed that people were replacing procmail
with fdm, so I grabbed fdm to take a look at it. But from what I can
see, fdm ONLY operates at the system-wide level. I can't find any
per-user configs.

Is there a way to use fdm on a per-user basis, where each user has their
own config file for fdm with their own rules? If not, what's a good
replacement for procmail?
