Yes this is possible.  For spamassassin we are using 
Mail::SpamAssassin::Client ( remember to use IO::Capture::Stdout 
capturing around the process function as when something goes wrong it 
will print to stdout messing up mimedefang's client/server communication ).

For clamav we are scanning localhost only.  Clamav (unlike spamassassin) 
does not play wel with load balancers. I'm currently looking into a 
clam-milter implementation so that clamd can be balanced but have not 
implemented this in our production servers.

With kind regards,
