Someone on this list suggested earlier having a look at imapspambegone,
an IMAP front end for SpamAssassin. I can vouch that imapspambegone ( or
isbg for short: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/imapspambegone ) looks
like a decent place to start hacking an IMAP front end for spambayes. 

In private email with isbg's author (Roger Binns), he I) expressed a
willingness to consider patches to isbg's code that would integrate
spambayes, and II) suggested that if there were a command line version
of spambayes (hammiefilter?) that produced return codes that could
distinguish between spam, unsure, and ham, isbg already could deal with
spambayes via isbg's --sasave and --satest command-line arguments.

If I weren't in the throes of moving house I'd have a quick hack at this
myself. Otherwise, any takers?
