I'd agree that some sort of way to peak at the database would be of use to
some people, and I imagine that something will get added to the binary
install at some point (after 1.0, for certain).

However - note that posting a feature request to the list is not generally a
good idea.  While it'll most likely get read, unless it's something that
could/should be done immediately, it's likely to get lost in all the other
(typically problem related) list traffic.

I'd recommend opening a feature request tracker on sourceforge:
<http://sf.net/projects/spambayes>.  This way it won't get lost, it's easy
for people to make comments, or submit patches, and there's a simple way to
track when it gets added (or rejected).

way, you get everyone's help, and avoid a lack of replies when I'm busy.
