Well, from my point of view I'm *the* Paul Smith, but there're a few of
us out there so I might not be the one you're thinking of :)

If that's true, it seems to me it would be equally straightforward to
include some kind of script wrapper or shim in the Ubuntu Evolution
package that allowed bogofilter to be optional: if it were installed it
would be invoked, if not it would not be invoked. This would just be a
packaging change and not require any code changes upstream.
But I'll discuss with those folks how this might work in Evo itself.
