It will parse them twice since it's looking for both and gets the same
file but that's nothing to worry about. It only reads those files every
time a MailScanner child is restarted which by default is every four
hours. If it takes an extra millisecond to parse I don't care because it
saves me a lot more time and trouble every time I want to use
spamassassin and sa-learn from the command line.
