Yes: <http://spambayes.sf.net/> though I think your model of how it works
probably needs a bit of refinement. <wink> You might want to read through

It's what we're running on the python.org site.  The initial impetus for it
came from a desire to filter spam for python.org mailing lists.  If you'd
like to contribute we can always use developers.
