Presume that's a 'post Spam Assassin scoring' re-injection.

..... there are a number of proven ways..

Not sure if the wheel is being re-invented here, or just a 'nuther set
of tires fitted, but should be a goal to keep it a bit lighter-weight
than some of the greylisting alternatives...

The real payoff is down the line - where it can reduce what SA etc. need
to see.

If SA (or other) output is then fed-back to strengthen the up-front
reduction, so much the better.
