I think that's an excellent idea!

We could go one better in MM2.1. There's now a "topics filter"
feature in the alpha codebase (sponsored by Control.com -- thanks
guys!) and I can easily see how it might be extended to something
- The filter marks the message with a % confidence of being spam
(e.g. X-Spam: 75%)
- Each Mailman recipient could specify the threshhold above which they
do not want to receive the message (e.g. don't sent me anything
that's spam with a more than 70% confidence level). This only works
for regular delivery.
