Hi Steve,

I was looking at the perl milter api for checking message bodies before 
I stumbled upon this one. Great work by you and Anthony!

Is the URIBL in your graph just a generic term here, or are you using 
milter-link with URIBL rather than SURBL, or both? I was just testing 
using SURBL, but might drop a couple more in and see how it goes...
