I just did : it's been added to CVS on June 11, same code as on the Wiki, 
but apparently not updated since, and not included in the contribs for 
the 1.0 release.

I already have a couple of naive questions :

* is the documented change on line 348 enough to run the script with a  
current version of Spambayes ?

* does use of sb_culler contribute to the training of the Spambayes db, 
or does it assume that it is kept current independently (by means of 
normal use by a mail client through the POP3 proxy for instance) ?

That's OK with me, as long as the code is in python :)

Well, if any of these new additions are available for outside use, I'd 
sure appreciate a copy of the updated script...
