One somewhat ironic point is that python.org is also very heavily 
spam-proofed - this results in any spams that do slip through the 
net getting a bunch of high ham-value clues (from received lines, &c).

On the other hand, the system _is_ doing it's job - after all, the
presence of python.org headers indicates that it's less likely to be
spam... and it's rare that these headers alone will push the message
into the (extremely small :) window that I consider ham.
