As a matter of fact O. does not mark spam. It is a meta list of several RBLs 
together and they just provide a special DNS based service where you can 
get an answer for the question: "Is it likely that from the IP where a MTA 
just tries to connect right now to my MTA does Spam come from?". So it's 
not spam analysis just a kind of  "good IP/bad IP" markup. And it can be 
quite easily applied to most MTAs.
I'm currently using a combination of three RBLs : :

with very good results: More than 60% of potential spam gets already blocked 
at the MTA without any user complaints - until now  ,-)) - that someone 
cannot deliver mail via the RBL-secured MTA.
