My thought would be:
1) set up per-user bayesian filters
2) set up per-user spamtrain and hamtrain folders (someuser lrs, and 
authenticate a cron job as someuser)
3) cron job reads your spam and ham hints, updates your bayesian filter.
(and if you want to give it more access, flushes the folder)

But I suspect this doesn't sufficiently meet your needs.
