The vast proportion of mail (I think) has only 1 recipient anyway, so 
you shouldn't notice much change in load. The SpamAssassin cache will 
help you a lot here, as messages that have been split will be identical 
and so the cache will have the answer for you. And the messages will 
tend to appear in the same batch, so the virus scanning overhead will be 
minimal too.
