procmail will let you split it up if you use \.  Further, spaces at the
beginning of the following line will be ignored, so you can even line
it up nicely.  Also, you don't need most of those parens.  Also, the
pmflags part of that is not doing what you expect, the ")|(" in the
middle should be just "|", but you don't need that because matching is
case insensitive by default.  Plus you need to use a lock file here
else you'll corrupt the filtered-spam file.
