"Use SpamAssassin = auto"?

Julian: An idle thought...

You already have a default "Virus Scanners = auto" to find whatever virus
scanner are available.  That "auto" setting is right for most of the
people most of the time: they generally don't need to do anything.

How about extending that same principle to "Use SpamAssassin"?  So the
default setting could be "Use SpamAssassin = auto" which, similarly, would
be right for most of the people most of the time.

Just a thought.

 Actually in theory, in future, if there were multiple anti-spam engines
 available one could envisage a "Spam Scanners = auto"...
