Sorry about coming into this so late; I was on vacation last week.

Depends on how much extra effort would be required to use 
SpamAssassin from within mimedefang-filter, and how much extra 
flexibility would be available. :-)

One alternate possibility which might be easier to implement is to 
add Sidney's code fragment to fake a Received: header for the last 
relay, but only if $SALocalTestsOnly = 0.  That would provide a 
fairly seamless "fix" for those who *do* want RBL testing in SA, and 
skip the extra overhead for those who don't.
