Nah, that would be too easy.  Seriously though, I switched as you suggested. 
Far better.

This was more of an exercise in doing alternate things based on a particular 
scenario.  While it might be a doc today, tomorrow it might be something

Anyway, the fact that Symantec and McAfee are STILL not identifying this 
document as dangerous is a great feather in ClamAV's cap, no doubt.
