We've got a few boxen running spamd as non-privileged user, but
spamassassin milter runs as root with no problems.
On the flip-side to your query, I haven't found anything that states
spamass milter shouldn't be run as root.

Don't know about Pyzor specifically, but we use Vipal's Razor with
success. Our situation is that we're an ISP, so we like the extra
checking to be as absolutely sure as possible that we're only rejecting
real spam. of course a few spams still trickle through but we haven't
had a single false positive.
