In fact, in the end I went a little more extreme then that.

I set my thresh_update to 5e-7, that's 0.0000005

Because the spamicity defaults to 6 decimal places precision, having the spam 
threshold set that low means that any spam that has 1.000000 or 0.000000 in 
the header wasn't updated.  Anything that has any other digits must have been 
updated on arrival.  :-)
