Our larger customers have more than one server doing the scanning.
If you have a central SQL database, it's very easy to keep the
Bayes data synchronized, because it's all centralized.

We moved to Berkeley DB files, and we have a mechanism for
synchronizing them from a master server that does all the learning.
(I should add that we do not use any of SpamAssassin's Bayes code; we
use our own code for this.  The SA code has several shortcomings that
made it unusable for our purposes.)
