I briefly studied that code, and it doesn't really help because this
code can already return "SMFIS_REJECT" at xxfi_body() time. Mimedefang
doesn't allow interactivity with sendmail at that level.

However, if you then look at the milter_data() routine in milter.c from
the sendmail source, then it becomes obvious that sendmail calls all
"data section" related milter calls for one milter in succession,
so it doesn't really matter whether you return the reject from
xxfi_body() or only at xxfi_eom()...

So: MIMEDefang is good enough (as I already said in my previous
message :)
