"Evaluating" numbers by regexp is finicky, but there's a SpamAssassin
setting that makes it provide a header with as many stars as the
message got spam points.  Then you just filter on r"^X-Spam-Stars:
\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*" (where you need to substitute the real header name
for "X-Spam-Stars", of course).
