The thing is...SpamAssassin is the hybrid approach. I just think it needs to learn to trust its bayesian filter a bit more. Certainly I've never had cause to regret raising the score on BAYES_99. Maybe all SA really needs is a rule that shorts out all the other tests if the bayesian filter is convinced that it has figured out the message. That, alone, might make SA a lot faster, at least in the client/server mode.
