Technically, with a score of 5, the mail still passes.  It just gets 
marked as spam.  (I hope no one actually rejects/deletes/bounces spam at 
an SA score of 5 or even 6 or 7 ... that would seem to me to be a bit 
irresponsible)  The logic is "flag it for review/quarantine/segregation 
if Botnet thinks it came from a zombie".

Hm.  What's wrong with having to egrep?
