Yup, and if it didn't involve procmail, I'd probably do it too.
I despise having two tools for the same job, especially when one
of them is a chainsaw with no blade guard or handle.  ;)

Someone else posted Perl and Python scripts for prefiltering.
Same objection, from my end.

I'd like to see Mailman have an option to "immediately trash"
messages of various criteria:  From someone at badhost.com, with
header "text/html", etc.
