Remember though that SpamAssassin does will not see the envelope
recipients unless they appear in the To: or Cc: headers. milter-bcc adds
blind carbon copy recipients to the envelope list, not to the headers so
SpamAssassin would not see envelope recipients nor would SpamAssassin
see the new recipients add at final dot since by then SpamAssassin would
have seen the whole message and report its result.

So in fact milter-bcc could not influence milter-spamc's behaviour.
