Can you prepare a full patch, with a ChangeLog entry?

Mentats are in the Dune books by Frank Herbert.  Basically human
computers.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mentat

Anyone using spam.el:

What parts of spam.el do you like?  How do you use it?

What parts are too complicated?

What does it not do today but should?

I'll start:

- I like the automatic message moving (ham out of spam groups and spam
  out of non-spam groups).  I use that in conjunction with server-based
  CRM114 filtering completely outside Gnus.

- the backend setup in the spam.el code is complicated.  The
  server/topic spam-related parameters are too numerous and probably
  should be outside it.

- first-time setup is unpleasantly complex

- today it does not interact with GMail's built-in spam folders.
  There's been recipes for that, but it probably should just work with a
  simple setup statement (spam-backend-gmail?).
