[PLUG] postfix/amavis per recipient bypass of content filter?

I'm having a problem receiving a large(~4 MB) email. I have a
relatively slow machine running our mailserver. It is running postfix
and amavisd in a before-queue content filter setup. When it receives
the large email, it takes a long time for amavis to decode the parts of
the message. The sender(a yahoo mailserver) times out(~160 seconds)
before amavis can finish decoding the parts. I've tried adding the
following to my amavis.conf file.
@bypass_virus_checks_acl = qw( galens at seitzassoc.com );
@bypass_banned_checks_acl = qw( galens at seitzassoc.com );
@bypass_spam_checks_acl = qw( galens at seitzassoc.com );
This speeded up processing, but it's still too slow. What would be useful,
but doesn't exist as far as I know, is a bypass_decode_parts_acl variable.
Ideas? Is it possible to have postfix bypass amavis based on the
recipient or other rules? While I should just tell the person to use
ftp, I'd like to see if I can make this work.
