[Mimedefang] Reject a message

both man mimedefang-filter

specify action_bounce() to be bad. I rather agree. But how can one
"reject" via the SMTP dialogue? I mean there is:

              Cause  an  SMTP  "temporary  failure"  code  to  be
              returned, so the sending mail  relay  requeues  the
              message and tries again later.  The message $msg is
              included with the temporary failure code.

so the SMTP dialogue is still active during the filter()'ing, is there a
way to cause a "permanent failure" code, so that I do not need to bounce
the message; so you have both: you have the sender notified and won't
accuse the wrong person.
