Yup, that's the only idea here <wink>.

Use less data?

I haven't really noticed that. If you're using your "--trainstyle full"
patch with timcv, then, yes, it would be enormously slower -- timcv gets
enormous *efficiency* benefits (both instruction-count and temporal cache
locality) out of incremental learning and unlearning.
The "third training pass" unique to the clt methods also doubles the
training time (each msg in the training data is tokenized once to update the
wordprobs, and then a second time to compute the clt ham and spam population
