Actually, Mydoom has a very detectable signature.  It has both X-Priority
and X-MSMail-Priority headers, but *neither* a X-Mailer nor X-MimeOLE

These conditions make, for instance, SpamAssassin catch the worm easily.
Based on all the available mailboxes I can scan from here, such a check
should kill only Mydoom [and some spam].

Rolled that into a milter, and poof!
