I do the same as Ladybird, use it as a mulch. There isn't nearly as much nutrition in leafmould as in general compost. I never sieve it, seems like a waste of time.
It's best to let the leaves turn brown and crumbly, then hopefully any diseases or fungus will have gone by the time you use it. Also slugs and snails like living in fresh leaves. Though I do know a man who uses fresh leaves for mulching.
