Summary: switch to not send body of spam to owner

Initial Comment:
Suppose there is a spam filter that has an action of
hold.  The system response is to send a mail to
list-owner to tigger moderation.  The offending mail is
included in that response.

It seems crazy that having received spam it is again
posted out
(thus increasing its distribution).  Also, its the case
that its likely to not arrive at a list owner because
it may be stopped at the gate (because other filters
will see it as spam also) or after arriving it may go
straight in the spam box and be unseen.

So, when a filter identifies spam and the action is to
hold then the email sent to list-owner should either be
just a notification to trigger action or there should
be an extra switch such as hold-andnotify-only as an
action.  Another possible approach is to have
list-owners able to configure what they receive in
owner notifications.  I personally prefer such a switch
to be on actions but the other would be a more flexible
scheme.
