The biggest problem is migrating the spam we've learned already to
bogofilters wordlist, aside that it shouldn't present many problems. I
don't have any good ideas as to doing this for existing user profiles,
we could of course just ignore that and assume a clean user profile, the
wiki could contain a small script to teach bogofilter all your known
spam for migration cases.

Note that by doing this we loose the remote tests that spamassassin
offers but those are off by default anyways so an out of the box system
will retain the same level of functionality.

I think we can do this for FC6, it would definitely be worth it,
bogofilter is _much_ faster and doesn't sit there using all your memory
just because you have Evolution open.

If we get it in before Test3 it should get plenty of testing and we
still have the spamassassin plugin to fallback on if things blow up in
an ugly fasion.
