i used it many times, for example to find out which archives are checked and
which not. In fact I even already wrote bugs for AV scan software because it
did not recognized eicar signature inside archives, which where announced.
#155485 is such an example.

Thomas, actually I wonder if you talk about Linux or Debian, or if you
confuse this with commercial windows packages, which can only be debugged by
their vendor.
