Couldn't you use spamassassin at the MTA level to set an X-Probably-Spam
style header?

Then make the mailman filter just a test for that header. Which should
result in spam assassin flagged messages requiring moderation.

Doesn't add an email interface, but would at least allow the use of a
spamassassin/mailman pairing.
