Would you be able to provide me some possible direction on the correct way 
to go with this?  Your original suggestion does not allow me to replicate 
the behavior of the patch we had previously used.  I think many places 
would find the ability to configure amavis to archive a copy all email to 
and from a given user into a specific mailbox particularly useful, and done 
in a way other than a patch you find objectionable. ;)
