All mass-check lines have a reuse=yes or reuse=no variable so it would
just be a matter of counting those.

When reuse was first added, the amount of mail NOT scanned was far
greater than the amount that was scanned.  I'm trying to remember all
the conversations about it back then, might we wise to review the
archives.  Seems like we even tried a scoring run with reuse only mail
to see how it turned out.

Its pretty easy to take out the hack that copies the non-reuse config
into place and I recently identified it as a performance bottle neck.
The real question is, how does ignoring those msgs affect results.
