We're close enough to the end of 2003 that we had better count that vote for
2004 too <wink>.

Those who helped with the early development were probably most impressed by
the speed of development Python allowed:  the first implementation of
spambayes was conceived, written, and working all in one day.  It was (of
course) much simpler then, had no real email interface apart from sucking up
files containing messages, and we'll overlook that the Outlook addin
threatens to consume the rest of Mark Hammond's life.  Other than those, it
went really fast <wink>.
