I'm kind of disappointed that it looks like nobody with commit access has
stepped up to make this change.  Although it has only been a day.  But
before we all forget about this....

The users list was definitely the right place to first bring this up, but
now that there has been consensus that something should probably be
changed in spamassassin, the best way to increase the chances of that
happening are to open a bug against spamassassin.

On the main spamassassin page, there's a "Bugs" link.  Anybody can submit

he'd be the sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet
copper armour and shouting 'All gods are bastards'." - The Color of Magic
