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.
