Since my Spam Actions are "attach deliver", my sa-learn script already has
to pull the attachment out of the forwarded email, so adding the spam
assassin report to the message will not hurt my manual spam training and
would probably be of interest to the recipients.  Maybe you could make it
available as a variable to use in the report file, like $from and $subject
is used now?
