[Mimedefang] newbie: virus-scanning

I'm trying to figuring out how to use MIMEDefang for virus scanning.

1) Why does some examples use $VirusFound = message_contains_virus() and
then scan each entity again if $VirusFound? So why not do either? Or when
message_**() finds a virus, why not act right away?

2) Some Mailclients automatically opens certain compressions, such as .gz
or .bz2, or encodings, such as uuencode, and present the contents as
attachement. Is this performed by MIMEDefang, too implicitly?

Are there any other examples archives besides those ones mentioned on the
MIMEDefang WWW pages and contrib(/linuxorg)?
