I drop the part with warning when File::Scan returns positive, so the 
recipient may decide further. Till now, I had no single complaint. But we 
do not scan thousands of mails daily :)

A line in the sample filter would be nice:

# Uncomment the next two lines if you want to use File::Scan if it is 
#(eval 'use File::Scan; $Features{"File::Scan"} = 1;')
#    or $Features{"File::Scan"} = 0;

Or vice verse:

# Comment out the next line to avoid using File::Scan
(eval 'use File::Scan; $Features{"File::Scan"} = 1;');
