(2nd Request) Disable scanning for a client that connectsviaSMTP-AUTH

I know I'm kind of bringing this topic back from the dead, but 
spamassasin has a rule called "ALL_TRUSTED" that detects if the e-mail 
used smtp-auth.  If so it give it negative score.  It does this by 
looking at the sendmail headers.  The problem I have is that my users 
are sending their mail from ip's that are on dns blacklists.  It would 
be nice if MailScanner was also able to read the headers the same way 
that spamassassin does and allow the user to skip dns blacklist checks 
for authenticated e-mails.
