I experimented briefly with this.  In the source distribution there is a
mod_spambayes.py plugin for Amit Patel's proxy3 web proxy.

Mod_spambayes.py is nothing more than a bare bones implementation.  That
leaves you plenty of room for enhancements (training, web page-specific
tokenizing, etc).

If you don't have the source distribution you'll probably want to get it.
