hmm, don't think I'm going to get a chance to ;)

Craig/Matt -- the tricky thing here is that 2 of the tests in "t" rely on
"-t" updating the auto-whitelist, so they can test it!

So I reckon an undocumented command-line arg to do -t while updating 
whitelist is the way around that, and just change the def behaviour
of "-t".

jm's getting ready to trot off around the globe for a while.  Reassigning all 
his unaccepted bugs to craig.

Alternatively, have spamassassin -t clean up after itself -- ie do the test,
update the whitelist, report, then revert the whitelist to pre-test state. 
Trouble with doing it this way though is you'll run into concurrency issues
though probably....

This will actually be more or less fixed by switching to the new AWL 
algorithm since it will only modify the mean for that sender somewhat, not 
really push the sender over some threshold.  Still might be worth 
implementing someday, but for now I'm just going to attach it to bug #23
