I second this, and agree with it entirely. MCP is almost always the 
wrong answer to your problem.

The "actions" and in particular "SpamAssassin Rule Actions" had not 
occurred to me when I wrote MCP. Had they done so, I would never have 
written it. But if you do use MCP, don't worry: I am not going to do 
anything stupid like remove it. :-)
