Yes, they are separate from each other.  -B says "add a BCC for
anything marked as spam, and deliver as normal", and -r says "don't
even accept spam above this value".  sendmail's milter interface
doesn't allow you to send a reject code back to the sender and also
deliver it, so in 0.2.0 -r trumps -B.  Current CVS code will reject the
original message and reinject a new message with the -B address.

I have received some patches that add features (more flexible -bBr),
but for the most part it's stablized.  I do need to put out a release.
