The one place you can effectively nest rules is that you can have a line in
a ruleset that looks like
From: /path/to/file/customers.txt yes
This will produce the value "yes" for mail from any address/pattern/domain
listed in /path/to/file/customers.txt.
You might want to use this in your spam whitelist for example.
