The bulkmode also offers a useful speed advantage when testing alternate
parameter sets or possible new parsing options. Both of those tasks call
for evaluating large numbers of messages and evaluating the results
generated by bogofilter.
Bulkmode _will_ be added to cvs. Last week was not the time to do it as
0.11.2 was about to be released and having 0.11.2 be stable is a prime concern.

The output also includes the file name. The order is maintained.
If you use additional options that generate output, for example "-p",
you'll see that output as well.

As I said above, it will be added to the official release.
