Oh, let me add a few other things...

I would implement a Handler module with a fairly generic class in it. 
The class has a method that accepts a message, and returns the message
with some spam header added.  I believe SA has a client/server interface
to it, and I know SB does, so this method would probably be fairly
similar for both systems (specialize it by derivation and overriding of
this method).

Then, in the handler module, you could instantiate zero or more
instances of this class (say if you wanted both SB and SA) and define
some ordering, probably via an mm_cfg variable.  Now, the handler module
exposes a process() method that's basically a shim to pass the message
to the filter method of each of the above instantiated classes.

match on the header added by SA or SB, and then take the action.
