Francois: spambayes has had my attention for some time, and OSAF just 
hired me to work on both
+ the interaction design of email
+ community-liaison stuff.
(I formally start on Monday.)

Thus I clearly will be a good person to talk to, and I personally 
think it would be marvellous to have a spambayes plug-in for Chandler.

Whether we'd make spambayes part of the Chandler distro or just 
provide good hooks might end up being a policy issue out of my hands, 
but I *do* want to make sure we provide a good plug-in API.  We have 
a chance to do it right (and we're already using Python <wink>).

However, I'm going to be pretty busy getting up to speed for *at 
least* the first two weeks; OSAF isn't going to be ready to release 
any source code for a while.  So hit the snooze button for right now 
and I'll ping y'all again when we are in a position to be able to 
process input usefully.

No reply needed.

P.S., if you were at the MIT conference, I'm the woman in the purple 
beret who asked lots of questions.
