Right. I don't see any reason for that difference. Why would
you want to score an mbox as a single message?

Either that or -M would never be needed.

Right, but -v does not and that might be expected.

I suggest always or never, I don't really have a strong
opinion which way.
Using bogofilter with no option (so we only get the exit
code) on an mbox cannot give a useful answer. So error seems
to be the correct state.

I know that. But I think this is one of the options which
could go without loosing any functionality. If you really
want controlled output, -v already produces that.
