 The way I understod it he's going to add SA to the server, and autoreport
everything SA catches to DCC.

 My "problem" with that is that I don't think it's a good idea to autoreport
from one spamcatching solution to another, since that will just up the number
of false positives; so I guess my question is if there's an official policy
regarding reporting 'many' to DCC based on software like SA.

     perl -e'print$_{$_} for sort%_=`lynx -dump`'
