This won't work with MailScanner, as MailScanner doesn't use "spamc" (it's
slow), and it is always run as the same user.

You can fairly easily add code to MailScanner (see to read
per-user settings from a SQL database. There will shortly be some code
appearing to do this which you will just be able to use without playing
around at all.

In the mean time, I might be able to find you some, but it isn't polished yet.
