[Spambayes] changing various Options settings.

Before we do a proper release of this puppy, there's a few options-related
changes I'd like to suggest:

First off, all the stuff that's currently under 'TestDriver' that gets
used by real people needs to be moved. I'm looking at

ham_cutoff:  0.20
spam_cutoff: 0.90

in particular. Unfortunately, changing this will break everyone who's 
currently got the system deployed. Rather than doing this, I suggest
we add a new section 'Categorization', and add cutoff_ham and cutoff_spam 
options. We can then change the code to use the new options rather than
the old - it means people with the old code will get their preferences
ignored until they upgrade, but the alternative is to make it break
for everyone.

That way, the only options most people will want to frob are either in
the 'Tokenizer' block, or the new 'Categorization' block.
