In this case, how does that help? I have 15 users on my
machine, not all of them using the same mail filtering system, who
use bogofilter. They all train their datasets based on some rules in
their filtering system.
I install the new bogfilter. I do not log out, and nobody
tells me anything during install. The new bogofilter continues to
corrupt 15 datasets, all carefully build up over time (and the emails
used to create that corpus have long gone).
How does the script running at next login (could be days) help
Seen on the wall in a New York subway station: "There are no integers
n > 2 and x, y, z > 0, such that x^n + y^n = z^n I have found a truly
wonderful proof of this. Unfortunately, my train is coming.
