Several clients (including myself) want virusscanning at the mail
gateway, but I was always reluctant to implement complex setups with
dual queues or double sends which let setup maintnance costs explode.

After browsing a bit through the URL there, exiscan v4 looks even more
intresting, because with v2 one has to make sure that no exim -q is run
_ever_ (which isn't as easy as it sounds).

OAre there any plans to package exim v4 in the near future?
