I would love to have this option (but can't help with the Python coding, not
knowing Python).

Adding header patterns to SpamDetect.py is one way, although not trivial.
Adding "check for list membership" wouldn't be that hard, but it would
take some actual Python coding.  I could see if I could hack something
like that up if there were sufficient interest.

Proposal: a modification to SpamDetect.py to auto-reject, with no
reply message, mail from non-subscribers (on lists with "subscriber posting
only" set).  Anyone besides Evilio dying for this?
