Why use policyD if you're using rspamd?  What features does it have that
you don't get with rspamd?  A quick glace at its documentation and the
only thing I can see rspamd doesn't have is quota support. 

Personally I think you're better off to just use rspamd, so it can see
all spam, not just the spam that policyD lets past.  That way it can
better train its bayes database. 

You don't mention what features you want from policyD in rspamd.  Given
that it's open source of course it's possible to extend it, you could
make rspamd also play tetris if you wanted.  Is it crazy? Well, you
don't say what you want to do, so this is hard to judge.  Is it a lot of
work? Well, it depends what you want to do.  Why don't you clone the
repo and have a go? :)
