The version I'm using has 335 lines of code in a subsidiary file which I then
include in my own filter using "require", with maybe 50-60 lines in the
filter which references the routines in the included file.  The whole filter
example posted may be 13000 lines, but the greylisting code is nowhere near
that size - Jonas does all sorts of additional checks which are very well
documented in the file, but that level of commenting makes it huge, and maybe
90% of what he does is only relevant to his policies and particular mail

Mimedefang is wonderfully modular, if you make it so - if you have a single
large filter, it looks terrifying...

If its any help, I can post what I use, with highlights of where in the main
filter it gets referenced?
