[MlMt] Updating SpamSieve

Interesting - is there any reason why the CPU architecture would be a 
factor here?  Or is the thinking that the complete wipe was required 
just due to normal cleanup and possibly a change to a new OS?

I think it would be bizarre if the ARM-based CPU arch would cause this 
but given the feedback here, need to ask.  Or maybe does the OS have 
different under-the-hood behavior due to it running on an M1 vs. x86?
