Well, it's only me, don't know if anyone else uses it. Still,
I think it's a brilliant idea. Doesn't get any more user friendly.

OK, obviously I'm using Maildir format, but let's not restrict
the functionality to that fact.

There you go, that's my solution then,
should work with all storage formats.

Who said anything about signatures not being available?
As far as I can tell from my tests, the signature's are picked up
nicely by the dspam plugin.
However, I'm used to a dspam setup where TrainPristine=on, and the
retraining/reclassification requires pristine mail-sources, without
the X-DSPAM-... stuff, including the signature.
So, basically, I would read the mail in error, be it spam or ham,
and pipe it to the dspam client for retraining/reclassification.
The --user option of dspam is used to point dspam to the correct
user (since we don't have a signature).
I saw some mail_get_istream() or similar, that seems to be a way
to open up some sort of byte stream reading the mail contents.
That might be what I'm looking for.
BTW, I would like to keep the previous functionality with the
dspam plugin using signatures. In order to do that I need to
be able to set dspam plugin specific options somwhow. Any idea?
