That's simplest, yes. (There are other options, like using
sb_upload.py with sb_server.py, or sb_mboxtrain.py).

It's not at all difficult to install. You download it, decompress
it, and do "./configure", "make", and "make install" and it's done.
ActiveState have a prebuilt version for OS X if you would prefer
that. Fink & DarwinPorts might too, I'm not sure.

Yes, but it would probably be much simpler to just call a Python
script and read the output. Or if you're wanting to run C++ code in
Python, then to call a compiled C++ application and read the output.
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
