Congratulations on the first release and thanks for sharing!

I've skimmed the website and I'm wondering what are the advantages of
this tool in comparison to existing solutions, e.g. those you've
mentioned. For instance, what would be the benefits of using sylfilter
in the light of availability of mature solutions such as bogofilter?
Could you please elaborate on that?

All the best,
