Hi David,

I'd very much like chronologically named quarantine directories - something
like qdir-20011129-235900-1

This way, I can list them in order, and figure out the date and time just
from the filename.  This would be particularly beneficial for removing old
quarantine directories.  I realise that the reporting script could find the
dates using other means, but it would be much much easier if its in the

Yes please !!!
