At some point in the near future, I'd like to convert MIMEDefang to use 
File::VirusScan (see http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?File::VirusScan).  
This is essentially the existing MIMEDefang antivirus integration code 
pulled out and modularized into something a bit more maintainable.

Patches against File::VirusScan::Engine::Daemon::ClamAV::Clamd to use 
a host/port will definitely be accepted, and might be enough of a spur 
to get David or I to finally finish integrating the module back into 

If you feel like implementing this, take a look at the other 
File::VirusScan::Engine::Daemon subclasses for inspiration, as some of 
them already handle taking a host/port instead of a UNIX socket.
