Relatively isolated; it's all in classifier.py, anyway.  I'll do this.  If
you (or anyone else) would like to eyeball it to check that there's no
obvious error anywhere, that would be great (it did appear to work for me,
though, and I used it for a couple of months.

Note that anyone wanting to use it will need to retrain from scratch to get
full benefit, and that it does slow down classifying somewhat.  Tim also
suggested that increasing the number of tokens used would be beneficial, and
I certainly found that the case (from 150 to 600, I think).

I wasn't paying enough attention to the earlier messages: is this the change
that means that only the strongest of the two unigrams and one bigram is
used?  If so, then yes, it includes that.
