No, you're probably swapping checksums fine.  419s (and possibly some
porn spams) are more likely low-volume enough that they don't hit many

Agreed.  I disabled DNSbl blocking just to see how effective the DCC was,
and was pretty pleased at the result.  From what you've told me, you move
a lot more mail than I do at my vanity domains, so DNSbl usage is probably
a much more effective use of your CPU cycles.
