Perfect trains immediately after scoring with the _actual_

Corrected trains immediately after scoring with the _guessed_
classification, then fixes everything to _actual_ at the end of
the day.  (This was interesting to me because it somewhat closely
models my actual usage, given my nightly retrains.)

In the raw output, yes, though I didn't graph it.  Some rough
cumulative averages:

perfect:    42 ham unsure and  290 spam unsure
corrected:  55 ham unsure and  330 spam unsure
fpfnunsure: 80 ham unsure and 1200 spam unsure
