Open source licenses allow you to modify, improve, experiment and learn from the code.
It does not prevent anyone from writing code the way they see fit and it is not
a cudgel with which to beat others into writing code the you want.
We certainly welcome discussion about any part of bogofilter, but people are
more likely to pay attention to your requests when they are polite.
If you believe that bogotune could use improvement, by all means improve it and if
you think that your changes might be useful to others, feel free to contribute
them to the project.
