New Anti-Spam Methods?

Slashdot story about some researchers who Claim "Effectively Perfect" Spam Blocking Discovery.

A team of computer scientists from the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley, CA are claiming to have found an "effectively perfect" method for blocking spam. The new system deciphers the templates a botnet is using to create spam and then teaches filters what to look for.

Basically it relies on the fact that spammers use templates to send out their emails, and reverse engineers them. All I can say is "oh please please make this work".
