I don't think so, time and again Matt has insisted on NOT soft linking 
sa-prefs.conf to local.cf (and if i understand correctly any *.cf file) 

a. Due to the problems already discussed in this thread
b. SA probably using the same file twice, unless mailscanner ceases to use 

But, i am obviously not Matt (and am quite likely to misunderstand sa's 
internal working) and also am sure he prefers to speak for himself.
