i was about to suggest the same thing, but for revision 107: i'd like
to satisfy lintian and linda with the cssconvert manpage.

Perhaps we should ask the submitter for patches for the documentation
directly?  The bug report description is quite long, and i'm not sure
what parts of it are higher-priority for him, or which parts would
have helped him get dspam integrated sooner.

i haven't been able to reproduce this either.

i don't use the web frontend myself, and i haven't set up a honeypot
address set up on any of my dspam domains, so i don't have any
experience with the errors he describes :/ dspam not including a
signature on a processed message seems weird to me.

Obviously, as the submitter I think this would be a good feature, but
i was hoping to get more feedback from folks about security and
client/server issues.  In particular (from the bug report):

  one thing i'm not clear about from a security perspective is how
  this patch will affect the dspam client/daemon interaction.  Can
  someone who understands that interaction better than myself weigh in
  on this?  What happens if a client is running with a different
  config file than the daemon it talks to?  Will this be a problem?

Without feedback from other developers, i think i'd want to run more
tests myself with various configurations before confidently pushing
this change into debian.  Consequently, i don't mind if it lingers in
wishlist a while longer.
