This is something I am trying to avoid. I do not think that it makes sense to
build such a plugin infrastructure. CRM114 is a unique spam battling technique
(turing complete token discrimenator) which is not used by Spamassassin as a
technique to find spam. That is why I am interested in such functionality.

As I said. I would not go into that direction. I see no benefits in using
DSPAM over Spamassassin or vice versa. I would simply like to see CRM114
support directly in MailScanner. However, I am glad that you are interested in
it. Maybe we could sync ideas?
