DESCRIPTION

       This plugin implements simple, test-based shortcircuiting.  Shortcircuiting a test will
       force all other pending rules to be skipped, if that test is hit.  In addition, a symbolic
       rule, "SHORTCIRCUIT", will fire.

       Recomended usage is to use "priority" to set rules with strong S/O values (ie.  1.0) to be
       run first, and make instant spam or ham classification based on that.

CONFIGURATION SETTINGS

       The following configuration settings are used to control shortcircuiting:

       shortcircuit SYMBOLIC_TEST_NAME {ham|spam|on|off}
           Shortcircuiting a test will force all other pending rules to be skipped, if that test
           is hit.

           Recomended usage is to use "priority" to set rules with strong S/O values (ie.  1.0)
           to be run first, and make instant spam or ham classification based on that.

           To override a test that uses shortcircuiting, you can set the classification type to
           "off".

           on  Shortcircuits the rest of the tests, but does not make a strict classification of
               spam or ham.  Rather, it uses the default score for the rule being shortcircuited.
               This would allow you, for example, to define a rule such as

                 body TEST /test/
                 describe TEST test rule that scores barely over spam threshold
                 score TEST 5.5
                 priority TEST -100
                 shortcircuit TEST on

               The result of a message hitting the above rule would be a final score of 5.5, as
               opposed to 100 (default) if it were classified as spam.

           off Disables shortcircuiting on said rule.

           spam
               Shortcircuit the rule using a set of defaults; override the default score of this
               rule with the score from "shortcircuit_spam_score", set the "noautolearn" tflag,
               and set priority to "-100".  In other words, equivalent to:

                 shortcircuit TEST on
                 priority TEST -100
                 score TEST 100
                 tflags TEST noautolearn

           ham Shortcircuit the rule using a set of defaults; override the default score of this
               rule with the score from "shortcircuit_ham_score", set the "noautolearn" and
               "nice" tflags, and set priority to "-100".   In other words, equivalent to:

                 shortcircuit TEST on
                 priority TEST -100
                 score TEST -100
                 tflags TEST noautolearn nice

       shortcircuit_spam_score n.nn (default: 100)
           When shortcircuit is used on a rule, and the shortcircuit classification type is set
           to "spam", this value should be applied in place of the default score for that rule.

       shortcircuit_ham_score n.nn (default: -100)
           When shortcircuit is used on a rule, and the shortcircuit classification type is set
           to "ham", this value should be applied in place of the default score for that rule.

TAGS

       The following tags are added to the set available for use in reports, headers etc.:

         _SC_              shortcircuit status (classification and rule name)
         _SCRULE_          rulename that caused the shortcircuit
         _SCTYPE_          shortcircuit classification ("spam", "ham", "default", "none")
