The SpamAssassin Cache does part of this - keeps a hash of the emails
and scores for a short period, and doesn't scan the email again if it
matched the hash.
For the storage (or rather not storing) if it hits the SpamAssassin
cache, interesting idea - what do other people think? Depends what you
do with the spam/highscoring spam first, not everyone stores the email
in the first place.
