Mailscanner and SA performance

Also keep in mind that if you make changes to your SA rules, that you'll
also have to restart Mailscanner so that it loads those changes.
CompileNow() keeps SA/Mailscanner from having to reread the rules at
every call in the same fashion that SpamD works.  However, Mailscanner
will reread the rules every 4 hours (default) when it reloads itself to
clear any collected perl garbage.

Just as a side note, can I remind you that SA performance will be
greatly improved by using a recent version of MailScanner and enabling
the "Compile SpamAssassin Once" option.
