 Decided to add a patch for this.

 If a logged-in user is marked as a spammer, `01.patch` checks to see if
 the user is a spammer.  If so, access to the site is killed off by using

 At first, I thought about redirecting to `wp-login.php?reauth=1`.  This
 logged the user out, but this didn't deter the user from simply re-
 registering a new account and spamming again.

 Patched against 1.7-bleeding with the hope of moving this into 1.7.
