Instead of viewing message source to look at the spam scoring to see how spam-like (or not) an individual message is, you can see several at a time and view each score individually in the new column Spamness adds.
Currently I re-normalize all scores relative to the spam threshold score, then bucket the natural log of an adjusted score (to avoid infinite results) so that the most offensive spam gets a big, solid visual, and the most indeterminate mails get small, indistinct visuals. I'm not positive that's mathematically sound, even for just showing a couple pretty circles.
Read the Spamness page for more on its use. A brief caveat: Spamness takes advantage the new customDBHeaders and customHeaders preference settings; you may already do so as well. I'm not sure what happens when they collide. I may try to do some other damage control later to insure the extension avoids quashing user preferences.
Feedback is requested and welcomed.
