Per-user mailscanner settings, adjustable by individual users?

Right now we have a webpage interface which allows users to individually
set stuff, and it writes the settings to the global mailscanner config
file as root, which is kind of hairy. It's also a huge mess to maintain.

Would be nice if you could specify something like

Virus Scanning = $HOME/.mailscanner/virus-scanning-rules
Allow Password-Protected Archives = $HOME/.mailscanner/zip-scanning-rules

This would allow per-user overrides, but only for specific mailscanner
settings. And it would let us do it in a more secure fashion than having
to have CGIs write to files as root.

One other thing, does mailscanner have to be restarted every time an
included ruleset changes?
