Fair enough. Which leads me to what I've said before, which is that the
only legitimate reason left for providing hooks for integrating tools
like SpamAssassin or SpamBayes inside of Mailman itself, is for those
people who don't have full control over their MTA.
It's still better to integrate tools like SpamAssassin and SpamBayes as
early in the process as possible, but sometimes there are limits as to
what is possible.
Now, in Lindsey's case, we're both members of a local Unix user group
here in Austin, and I happen to know that he owns the entire machine.
So, it's certainly possible for him to install SpamAssassin with the
full user-level rules incorporated. Of course, that may be a
non-trivial task, but it's still an option that is available to him.
