Fair enough for playing with Bayes, but leaving them in place is a just
nuisance when you're developing private rules because the old headers
tend to obscure what you're looking for.

If you push a message through spamc with  X-Spam* headers already in
it, the original headers are still there in the output, though now
preceded by the ones added by the test. This can be a real pain if
you're running a set of messages through spamc and using grep or awk to
remove everything except the initial spam status line plus any lines
containing the name of the rule being developed.
