This can be done by wrapping the sanitizer with a script which
first saves the original message to disk and only uses the
output from Anomy if some sort of critical modification has been
made. Modifications can be detected by either grepping Anomy's
log output (sent it to STDERR, grep that) or setting the
"score_bad" variable to something low and checking the program's
Anomy itself processes the messages as a stream - it has no way to
backtrack and undo the changes after the fact if no security risks
