i'll take a look.  always interested in seeing what other mutt users do.
here's a couple of pretty plain-jane macros i wrote a long time ago:

macro pager S "<pipe-entry>bogofilter -s\n"
macro index S "<pipe-entry>bogofilter -s\n"
macro pager N "<pipe-entry>bogofilter -n\n"
macro index N "<pipe-entry>bogofilter -n\n"

so an email is "s"pam, unless it's "n"ot spam.   ;-)

also have some for spamcop too.

fcc-hook 'submit.foo@spam.spamcop.net' /dev/null
# Set varioius things in messages that go to spamcop.
send-hook 'submit.foo@spam.spamcop.net' \
	'set pgp_autosign=no ; set mime_forward ; set editor=/bin/true ; push y'
# Pressing ctl-f sends the email to spamcop in pager and index mode.
macro pager F "<display-toggle-weed><forward-message>submit.foo@spam.spamcop.net\n<exit>"
macro index F "<display-toggle-weed><forward-message>submit.foo@spam.spamcop.net\n<exit>"

those were hard to get right.
