Which patch are you referring to?

Using the SpamAssassin's PMS->get_required_score from amavisd
doesn't play well with amavisd's handling of per-recipient
score thresholds. Amavisd traditionally calls SpamAssassin
only once even for multi-recipient messages, then does
per-recipient handling by itself. Using the required_score
would require calling SA once for each recipient.

The version 2.7.0 of amavisd went ahead in this direction
and allowed calling SpamAssassin once for each recipient,
and using SpamAssassin's user preferences SQL lookups.
This comes at a cost, both in speed and in memory, as
saving and restoring SpamAssassin state is rather expensive.
Still, even with such a setup the required_score is
currently ignored.

So a short answer is: no, using required_score from
SpamAssassin's SQL lookups is currently not practical.
