That's right, it only trains on message that haven't already been
trained, or have changed classification.  So if you keep mail around for
a while, and your mail program is capable of running external filters
(eg. mutt or gnus), you'll get better performance using the -t option to
hammiefilter and never running mboxtrain.  Of course, if you run
mboxtrain out of cron early in the morning when you're asleep, you
probably don't care much about performance :)
