The antispam plugin? No, I haven't... mostly because it looks like no 
matter which backend I use, I'd have to alter the user-visible 
interface to my training system (which I don't really want to do), and 
it still doesn't handle the "altered message" problem.

Hmmm, load is something I hadn't thought about... (the system I'm 
working with at the moment has plenty of capacity to spare). That's a 
good point.

However, one of the goals here is to make it so that if a user 
identifies a message that has been mistakenly tagged as spam (and 
"sanitized" by SpamAssassin, e.g. via the "report_safe" setting), they 
can get the message corrected (and back to its original form) 
immediately. As it is, they have to put it into the NotSpam folder and 
wait a couple minutes for the message to reappear in the INBOX 
(because the cron job only runs every so often).

No, I don't know that Atheists should be considered as citizens, nor 
should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.
