Mmm.  How do you take different actions on an arbitrary subset of the 
viruses Clam tags with clamav-milter?

That point is my own key reason to call Clam from MIMEDefang - I can do 
anything I like with the results.  clamav-milter can't do different 
things depending on what was detected, it can only 
discard/quarantine/reject on any hit.

(In particular, any of the phishing or heuristics hits from Clam can be 
flagged and passed on for further processing by SpamAssasin while still 
dropping any hit with ".Trojan." in the name.)
