Thanks for your work on this, Michael. I've been holding off on doing 
the update on my gentoo boxes due to lack of time — and hesitations as 
to whether to move to amavisd instead, as I'm keen on the possibility of 
doing before-queue spamassassin, but not so clear on whether there's a 
good amavisd equivalent to MailWatch.

Anyway, I'll give your ebuild a try on a test box later this week and 
get back to you with my thoughts.
