Well, it might be possible in cases of repeated spam to add rules to
the mailman spam checker.

If not, or that's not timely enough, it's too bad, because I suspect
that to get treatment of 5xx statuses changed based on the DSN text
you'll need to hack the source and restart Mailman (Python will
automatically recompile out-of-date .pycs, so you don't need to worry
about rebuilding Mailman).  But that sounds like a heavier action too.

Don't lose hope yet, though, I'm not authoritative on this, I just
seem to remember that to the the case.
