Yes, I have thought of revising it someday, but have spent my cycles at
other topics recently (vacationing and now something called "work").
The revised interface could be something like:
ctrlcode smtpcode-continued text line
ctrlcode smtpcode last text line
That is, separate control code driving the behaviour, then just sender
visible text lines.
The ctrlcode could be something like:
0 ok, accept (default reply: "250 Ok")
1 discard (default reply: "500 content not liked")
2 freeze (default reply: "250 delivered into freezer")
and more carefull response parser making sure that there indeed is
a numeric control code, with space following it, and then 3 numeric
chars with space or "-" (continued line, or not).
If the approver subroutine yields something else, discard the message
and yield "400 problem with the content policy subsystem"
