I meant globals that you set in custom filters.  It might seem
like you could set some values when the sender or the recipient
list is passed through the milter interface, then check them
later when processing the content.  However, due to the
way mimedefang optimizes the processing, the different stages
of a single message may be handled by different instances
of perl slave processes.
