Not easily.  The most reliable method I can think of is shelling out
and calling "sendmail -bv" on the recipient address, then parsing the
result and passing the "user" value to spamc.  I just wish it emitted
machine-readable output.  Parsing and opening all the alias
and *table files inside the milter is the other solution, but I don't
like that one :)
