Trying greylisting

I've added greylisting to the list of spam countermeasures for our server project. It works surprisingly well and the amount of spam arriving at my inbox is reduced by a ratio of 20:1. While this is good there are of course downsides of greylisting such as an artificial delay for delivery of valid or good email. Also auto whitelisting should take care of regular contacts. Anyway I'm really interested in how many of our users will see the change in amount of spam vs. delivery delay, and if anyone of them will demand permanent whitelisting :-)
