SpamAssassin just prefixes the subject (with *****SPAM*****, or a 
user-configurable string), and that seems to work for just about 
everyone.  Pretty much all MUAs which provide any rules functionality 
at all will allow you to search for a particular word or string within 
the subject line, or at the very least beginning the subject line.
