Another example is the Bayes component of SpamAssassin. SA is commonly
invoked as a Perl library by "milters" (mail filters). Milters may run as
multiple processes and may be spawned from multiple instances of sendmail.
MIMEDefang (what I use) runs this way. SA may also be invoked by procmail
on mail delivery, with multiple delivery processes running concurrently.
