I can't compare and contrast amavisd-new and amavis-ng, unfortunately.
However, amavisd-new has some excellent features that the amavisd people
are pondering merging into amavisd (or so their postings on amavis-user
would lead me to think).  I haven't had a single problem with
amavisd-new.  My mail server processes about 12k messages a day, all of
which are scanned with amavisd-new and Eset NOD32 (client/server mode).

Yes.  It's a pain.  The amavis-ng upstream would do well to ensure
that he takes from amavisd-new any and all improvements to be found

Ok. :)
