Did think that was the case - hence asking on the mailinglist if there 
was a way around it, its nice to offload services to other servers 
sometimes hence the reason we have a seperate servers setup purly for 
spamassasin with tmpfs filesystems and such for speeding things up.

And yes already use bayes in mysql on some servers so this should work 
to move over i guess without too much issues, just would have rather 
moved the whole spamassassin part to its own setup for service seperation.
