One extra point. Don't change the -wrapper scripts, that's wrong and
will be overwritten the next time you upgrade. What you should be doing
is editing /etc/MailScanner/virus.scanners.conf as that tells
MailScanner where the virus scanners are installed.
You don't ever have to change my code, there are configuratioon files to
do what you want.
