To which I add mine, even though I normally try to avoid "me too" posts. 
  The software is a great achievement, and deserves popular success.

While it may not adequately credit the implementation language, a Google 
search for "sourceforge spambayes" results in the first hit being linked 
as """SpamBayes: Bayesian anti-spam classifier written in Python.""".

The web page to which this link points unfortunately doesn't reapeat the 
Python reference in the page body. But they only miss the Python 
reference if they feel lucky and don't look at the browser title bar!
