[Esa-l] NOTICE: suggested change in local-rules

I just got an anonymous Hybris .EXE in my mailbox. It wasn't caught by
my local-rules ruleset because it was right on the lower size limit I
was using. It only exceeded the lower limit *after* the sanitizer
added its headers.

If you have an anonymous-executable trap that has size boundaries, I
suggest you reduce the lower boundary to 20000.

  Failure to plan ahead on someone else's part does not constitute an
  emergency on my part.
