I have done some further tests and the code for the "SpamCore" header
seems to work more or less as you describe above.
If the score is < 1.0 there is no "SpamScore" header.

If the score is >= 1.0 then the number of "s" characters in the
"SpamScore" header appears to be the score rounded down to the nearest
