I'd be interested in this as well.  In the train-to-exhaustion script I
currently force it to train on pairs of ham and spam.  That means the
database is rigorously in-balance (except for the repeated training bit),
but that many spams I've saved are so far unused.  I generally add hams to
the database which didn't score below 0.4 just to try and boost the number
of hams.  I'd like to know a good way to selectively discard spams for this
