Seconded (or thirded :).

policyd-weight is much smaller than amavisd-new or SpamAssassin (it  
tends to run a couple of ~7 MB RSIZE processes, rather than a bunch  
of 45 - 80MB RSIZE), and it's caching of RBL/DNSBL lookups means it  
can handle and offload a bunch of queries that the others would do.
