I think I have a top level solid technical design for a SPAM avoidance
strategy that uses a completely novel approach, but is completely obvious
after disclosure. I am still a little protective of it, but would discuss
it under promise of confidentiality.

I read the code then, line for line. It is clearly constructed, and easy
to audit side by side with the RFC. I encourage you to add it to the
release. However, it forwards to a downstream SMTP service and I want to
place files on a filesystem (physical disk).
My application reads the incoming network and writes to the disk, and is
very slow. My estimate is about 4 chars / second, or an hour to write a 14
Kb message ( ! )
