Sendmail Milters in Python

Milter is a python module providing an interface to sendmail-8.11
libmilter.  A Python milter lets python code work with sendmail to remove
spam, scan for viruses, and otherwise monitor and/or alter mail messages
as they are received by sendmail.  This is more efficient than procmail
solutions because messages are handled as they are received by sendmail.
Thus, a message with a subject containing '$$$' can be rejected before it
is fully received.

Version 0.3.1 of milter has been extensively tested on a production
aix-4.1.5 mail server with python-2.1.1 and sendmail-8.11.5.  Lots of threading
bugs and memory leaks were fixed.  It should even still work on linux! :-)
