I've thought about (and almost started playing with implementing) this, too
(and, of course, ran across the same to-do list/free time problem).

Were you thinking of having this as a standalone filter type thing (a la
imapfilter), or still as a proxy?  If the proxy, had you given any thought
to what you'd feed back to the mail client?  I was wondering about this and
the best I came up with was substituting the message with a (easily
recognisable and therefore filterable) message from spambayes.  It seems
that it would be easy to confuse the client, otherwise.

I'm curious to know what your ideas are - this may move up my to-do list
after the testing/etc for the '7.5' binary is done since my wife's
connection is via dialup (in a rural area, as well, which doesn't help), has
very homogeneous spam, and could speed things up greatly.
