The part "do it well" is affected by this bug. Also if you don't need
additional functionality provided by Amavis you could just stick to bare
spamassassin via spamc/spamd as described here:

Amavis provides much more functionality than just spamassassin
integration: there is also virus scanning, DKIM processing, and much
more. It enables you to easily implement very complicated e-mail flows
within your system if you need/desire. This bug impacts many of this
functionalities, which has nothing to do with Unix Philosophy. It's just
a bug with simple two line fix.
