No different behaviour for the end user. Your user could continue to 
drag&drop messages in/out of the designated Spam folder. The only 
different, which is not visible to the end user, is that the retrain of 
false positives is activated by pulling the messages out of the Spam 
folder, rather than having to specifically put it in a Ham folder. That 
said, they can continue to use the Ham folder as a placebo. ;)

Out of curiosity, why would you need to alter the message when moving it
