There are a couple of changes that have to happen to the MailScanner source
to support SpamAssassin 2.1, which unfortunately removes backward
compatibility with 2.01 and earlier.

I have made the relevant changes to the source and should be publishing a
new version of MailScanner (to fit with SA 2.1 among other changes) next
week, once my beta-testers have confirmed there aren't any glaring problems.
