Anomy::HTMLCleaner is buggy and unmaintained.  We removed support for
it from mimedefang.pl.

You are, of course, free to use Anomy::HTMLCleaner yourself in your filter
if you like.

Yeah, that's a good idea... however, our plans are to rework mimedefang.pl
into a much cleaner piece of Perl that has a nicer filter API.  So we'll
probably be getting rid of the action_xxx functions anyway; everything
will be OO.

(Don't worry... our plans are to ship a MIMEDefang::Legacy module to
let existing filter code keep working.)
