Thanks for bmf. It seems to work well and the
independence on libJudy is a great relief.

Would love to see:

1) A -v (verbose) option prints informative progress
while processing a message (see bogofilter)

2) Ability to input a multiple-message folder (see
bogofilter) like a big spam mailbox for training and
have it treated like multiple messages (using the "From
... date" boundary).

    I'll work on verbosity. Do you intend to use it in normal
    operation, or just for testing?

    I specifically removed support for multiple messages because
    formail(1) already does that: "cat inbox | formail -s bmf
    -n". I'm
    sure that it's much smarter about the mbox format than I am.
    Does it not provide what you need, or is it unavailable, or is
    there some other reason you want it (convenience?)

    Thanks for the comments. :-)

    Please note that the current release supports multiple messages in mbox mode
    and there is also a verbose flag. This feature request will be closed when
    I am satisfied with the output of the verbose flag, which should happen in
    the 0.9.5 release.
