[Mimedefang] Any point in using File::Scan as well as clamav?

To update File::Scan regularly, run the following script from cron...

use CPAN;
install File::Scan;

I run this nightly, and it works fine, to keep File::Scan up to date.

I've seen a few posts in the archives about changing the default script to
use multiple virus scanners instead of just the first one it finds.
Question is, if I have clamav up and running is there any point in using
File::Scan too? I would assume that clamav will catch anything that
File::Scan would, given that its definitions are kept up to date, and
AFAICS File::Scan doesn't get updated. Or have I misunderstiood the point
of File::Scan entirely?
