It is for exactly what you've described - putting the message into the
unknown cache. Then you can use the web interface to train it, manually.
If you want a script to train a message, then I think sb_[bn]filter can do
this, and maybe sb_mboxtrain?

I'll change the docstring to be clearer about what the script is doing.

I'll fix that, too; thanks.
