spamass-milter appends to message headers; should prepend

Bug Description

Binary package hint: spamass-milter

spamass-milter adds the following headers to messages:

X-Spam-Status: No, score=-2.8 required=5.0 tests=AWL,BAYES_05,
 UNPARSEABLE_RELAY autolearn=ham version=3.2.5
X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.2.5 (2008-06-10) on

which is great. However, these headers are appended to the set of headers in the message, rather than prepended. It'd be better if the new headers were prepended, so if the email gets routed through N servers, the spamassassin headers and "Received:" headers would intermingle in time order. This would better show where the message was scanned.

I'm not sure how to get launchpad to monitor remote bugs, unless they're for a distro rather than a project...
