This looks to be an SQL implementation of a .rules file, and very handy 
for building front-ends to manage the HIGH/LOW spam thresholds, but not 
really what I'm looking for. I want to be able to set per user scores on 
every rule in SA, similar to what's possible using SA alone.

The Mail::SpamAssassin API allows an optional $userprefs_filename 
parameter that contains the path to a per user S.A. prefs file, but I'm 
not sure what would be involved in using this with MailScanner, or if 
it's even possible with MailScanner.
