I'm one of the maintainers, but there are more maintainers and I like to
hear their opinion too :)

world-readable means that passwords for database servers are readable
for every user, besides that only the administrator can login in the
webinterface and change the webfrontend.conf, there are AFAIK no options
to change things in dspam.conf. On the other hand, we can change
webfrontend.conf owned by root and add a note in README.Debian that if a
person would like to edit the webfrontend.conf by the web interface that
they need to change the permissions...

The users can have also different preferences but these are stored in
/var/spool/dspam. They inherit the configuration from webfrontend.conf
and may override some options.

What do you prefer?
