Some of my clients who are using John's sanitizer (and are also active 
mailing list participants) are being bombarded with mass quantities of 
the Swen worm. Unfortunately, the overhead of running Procmail and Perl 
on so many huge messages is bringing the mail servers to their knees.

John, have you considered adding an option that "nices down" Perl and 
Procmail so that other tasks can run?
