Why is parsing X-Spam-Status better than counting the '*' in
X-Spam-Level though?  As long as the code doesn't try to split an
empty field, I think it should be fine.  (Unless there are cases where
Spamassassin inserts X-Spam-Status and no X-Spam-Level.)

Here[1] is something only lightly tested (outside of trac, as I have
no trac install handy to test with).  It might be something worth
adding along with the check you've added to catch X-Spam-Flag: Yes.
