Alas, no.  The folks I can think of who *could* do it don't run
Windows or use Outlook, and would have no interest in doing it.

Since the problem reports I've seen here lately all seem to be related
to SpamBayes not working with 64 bit Outlook, I *would* suggest an
addition to the FAQ about the incompatibility between 64 bit Outlook
and 32 bit SpamBayes, with a pointer to instructions for installing
SpamBayes as a  proxy server instead.  I believe that *does* work with
64 bit Outlook.  An appropriate note on the SpamBayes homepage would
also be a good idea.
