Well, for one thing, this is different behavior than what my users are 
used to, and I'd rather not have to re-explain how things work and 
deal with confusion about the difference in behavior.

Plus, unless I misunderstand the antispam plugin (quite possible), it 
doesn't *alter* the message when you remove it from the Spam folder 
--- because if it did, that could confuse IMAP clients that expect 
messages not to change when moved.
