syslog for ClamAV?

    I've been switching back and forth between clamavmodule and
clamav in 4.43.8 (bug chasing).  With clamavmodule, I get a nice
syslog message for an infected email:

ClamAVModule::INFECTED:: Worm.SomeFool.Z:: ./j66IRGRu018517/

With clamav, I don't get anything similar, just vague mumblings 
about Clam in the "silent virus" message -- maybe.  Any chance that a
nice INFECTED syslog could appear if you are using just clamav
(or sophos instead of sophossavi)?
