I think min-dev is there, but that robx is not (it is
obviously in the manual). Even if robx was there and dealt
with in much the same way as min_dev, I doubt that users at
my level of inexpertise would be able to hit on a sensible
strategy to deal with random words. I have in mind a very
simple FAQ entry, with a few example settings.
What the statistically-challenged amongst us need is a nice
gui with a probability-of-rejection slider graduated
from "Will block only obvious spam" to "May treat your
grandma as a spammer".

I am not sure I could do a good job, but if no wiser person
volunteers I may have a go.
