The reason was twofold: I tried to avoid a potential trademark issue
with a spelling "SPAM" (hence lowercasing it); and while at it, I dropped
its log level from 2 to 3 to reduce the redundant clutter at level 2,
as the list of SA tests can be (and often is) already included in the
main log line (at log level 0), avoiding the need to log at 2.

Try the attached trivial patch (on 2.7.0). It brings it back to level 2,
but also further lowercases the word. Do the log analyzer still
recognize it even if fully lowercased? If so, I guess I can put it back
in this form.
