Possible wishlist item - attachment decisions

I recall asking along time ago if the virus scan could be done before
the spam so that MailScanner wouldn't have to SA check virus messages
because they'd be removed from the batch sent to the SA subroutine.

I thought it made sense.

I thought I saw a discussion about this, but I can't seem to find it
again, so I am going to ask:

Can MailScanner be told NOT the virus-scan a message (and/or
attachments) if the filename.rules are going to deny it anyway?

I thought I saw some discussion about this and that is was not something
one would want, but it would be if lack of it makes higher-ups want to
change e-mail products...  which I would rather not do.
