Perhaps the cache time could be specified as one of the options for
(Spam|High Scoring Spam|Non Spam) Actions?  The defaults could be set if
nothing were specified.  And if someone wanted different times based on
certain entries in SpamAssassin report, they could just write a custom
function to do so.

Ex. - To cache high scoring spam for 10 minutes

High Scoring Spam Actions = store delete cache:10

This way you're not really adding more configuration options, just an
additional action, and you can default it to what everyone agrees would
be sensible.

Just a thought.
