Cool SpamAss hold and deliver feature, can we implement that in MailScanner

It doesn't need to be implemented in MailScanner at all, it's just a fancy
quarantine management system. Anyone fancy writing a system like this?
Extra add-ons like this aren't really my area, I concentrate on the core
and leave others to "add value" by implementing systems like this.
