My impression was that, because of this entry, it needed to be found
in two lists, not just one.  This is probably a misunderstanding on my
part, so being on one list marks the message as spam while two lists
marks the message as high scoring spam for people who have a different
action for high scoring spam.

What I was hoping for was a way to have three tiers of spam lists.
The most trusted ones are configured into sendmail, so the connection
is dropped immediately and MailScanner never sees it.  For the second
level, which I was trying to do here, mail is blocked only if it is
found in multiple lists (to allow administrators to give some weight
to what they might consider to be overly aggressive blacklists).
Finally, if a message makes it past those checks, SpamAssassin will
still assign points to the message based on what lists it was found
