You can now either add some javascript snippet to handle the command
'plugin.as224' or add the button as follows:

             'type' => 'link',
             'label' => 'Anti Spam',
             'name' => 'dummy',
             'class' => 'rlink',
             'classact' => 'rlink active',
             'href' => 'http://someurl',
             'target' => '_blank',
             ), 'taskbar');

Please note the 'name' attribute which is just a dummy values but is
required by the code (the core requires either a command or a name
attribute for a button). Regular link attributes such as 'href' and
'target' are accepted and added to the html output.
