No, but I know how I'd implement if if I had the time.

I'd implement the spamtest sieve extension.  I'd also be very sure that 
the way it was implemented was extensible so that sites could choose 
whatever method they wanted (and additional methods could be add easily). 
By "method" I mean "spamassassin", "dspam", "check a header", etc.
