We can if we resort to an outside process:
Or we can generate a duplicate of the message and filter that to keep
only the first 30 lines; or we could use some insidious scoring trick
-- what I had in mind was something like, set the base score 30
notches below "infinity" and add one for each line, would that work?
Or, simply, you could look at the size of the message and see to it
that you don't process any large messages in the first place.
