How is the profanity filter implemented (built into the code or an
external lookup server? If the latter, substituting Spamassassin should
be fairly simple. Php would pass the message to spamc the spamd client,
spamd scans it, adds headers containing the spam score and returns it to
spamc. Filtering is done downstream of spamc by using the spam score. It
would be trivial to make Spamassassin do double duty and serve as the
profanity filter too. 
As all spam scoring is done by spamd, the same server instance can be
simultaneously used by the mailing list. Most MTAs can call it already.
