Can you repasteurize spoiled milk?

Sure, you can pasteurize anyfluid by heating it to an incredible temperature for a duration. Would you want to? Pasteurizing spoiled milk would kill off the bacteria present, but it's not going to make the milk good as new. I suppose repasteurized milk would be safe to drink, at least safer than the spoiled stuff, but it would probably taste awful since the milk has already soured.
