Max SpamAssassin Size problems

With the new OCR/Image verification plugins now available for
SpamAssassin, MailScanner truncating messages due to "Max SpamAssassin
Size" in the middle of an attached image is causing higher than normal
scores due to these images appearing to be corrupt.  How hard would it
be to truncate to the closest MIME boundary (either before or after this
value) instead of in the middle of it?  You could increase the value of
"Max SpamAssassin Size", but unless it's the same as the max allowed
message size you're still going to potentially truncate MIME
attachments.  There may also be other SA tests that get triggered due to
truncated MIME attachments.
