There was aleady an ITP by Magnus Ekdahl <firstname.lastname@example.org>, bug
#146283, so watch out that you don't reinvent the wheel. You might want
to contact him (if you haven't already).

If it is better then scannerdaemon (and it sounds like it), then I will
orphan scannerdaemon when new packages that support this can be uploaded

AMaVis in Debian already supports both postfix and sendmail (I seem to
remember it did get into unstable), it doesn't support clam (should be
easy to do I think. It is in contrib, but the code is GPL, so it should
be possible to move it.
Any chance you could please send me the patch (via private email) to
allow AMaVis to use clam?
