There's no need for an 'include' directive.  Simply create a new file
with a .cf extension in your local SA rules directory and give the
person rights to that file.  They can put whatever white/black list
items they want there.

Alternatively, if this is solely for their benefit, they can put their
white/black list data in their user_prefs file in their ~/.spamassassin
