And in fact the code doesn't even exist in current CVS or in 1.0a9 (0.9),
even though the option is there (but deprecated).  So only people using
out-of-date spambayes might be using it.

Note that this could only effect your results if you did in fact have an
imbalance - you didn't say how the corpus was split.
