Very poorly.  I think that'd send it straight into DB corruption.
In general, spambayes is likely to require a bit more disk space
than any fixed-pattern classifier like SpamAssassin... my database
is about 20 megs, for instance.  I don't hink that SpamAssassin
requires more than a few K of personal storage, unless you turn on
its bayesian stuff...
