(c) isn't useful to me without doing a lot of .procmail work (I can't 
create new mail accounts willy nilly).

(b) is a fallback, but too much an out-of-process

(a) is probably best, as long as I can label several folders as being 
"train as ham" -- I don't want to destroy my existing folder hierarchy.

(d) Ideally: by a "delete with prejudice" button in my email client 
(mozilla mail).
