Performance is fine for me at the moment. e.g. this morning 60 messages 
were classified in 40s. I'm intending to have imapfilter running full 
time in the background once everything's working, so it will just need 
to do 2 or 3 messages every 10 minutes. So, performance isn't a problem.

Again - not a problem. The way things stand I'm having to 
delete/retrain/edit the DB every couple of days anyway.

BTW, the IMAP server I'm using is Cyrus v1.6.24. Could be useful to know.
