Hmm. Looks like I wrote the documentation first and implemented 
something different. I must of had a desire to log as much about the 
message as possible before taking an action.

> Why -c command is executed if -e exit status greater than 0?

I've forgotten the original reason. I'm sure I had one. I'll review the 
code today and consider changing it as documented.

> Why milter add header if message should be discarded?

Well that part was because I don't constantly check the results of the 
code for everything that happens at the end of a message. Also the 
changing of headers provides interesting log output, that I would 
probably log anyways if I simply acted on the discard different. Its 
more or less programming shortcuts that don't affect the functionality 
of sendmail. Changing headers on a discarded email ends up just being a 
noop, which only looks a little odd.

I'll look into that one.

Essentially I always add X-Scanned-By headers in all content milters. 
I'll look into an option to turn it off as I have done for other milters.
