What you don't explain here, is how the spam header gets there in the
first place. I suppose I could do something like this.

<list>:       "|spamc|dropspam /etc/smrsh/wrapper post <list>"

spamc is the spamassassin script, which checks for spam, then pipe to
the dropspam script. Spamassassin has a perl interface, so I could also
just do it in one script.
