Ask Derrick 'dman' Hudson <dman at dman13.dyndns.org> :-)

BTW - the idea is not really braindead - it just differs from yours.
The only flaw is that it relies on a previous set X-Spam-Flag which is
usually no problem (no known problems for >1year and millions
of mails) because nobody sets a X-Spam-Flag without a reason.

There are people who say: Altering or deleting Mail-Headers is evil.
They must only be appended. If you Append a 2nd X-Spam-Flag you
have to rely on every MUA and filter to take the correct (which is
what?) X-Spam-Flag. That's the flaw in your setup.

Maybe this should better be discussed on one of the spamassassin
mailing lists to give us a common recommendation for all implementations.
