Just a thought. Could you create a single config option that took
one or more parameters, a little like the way SpamAssassin sets the
scores for rules.
Cache Timeout = 10 60 120
Which would set the time outs as
Spam = 10
High Scoring Spam = 60
Viruses = 120
If a single value is given all are set to that one value:
Cache Timeout = 0
Would disable all caching.
I am not too sure if this fits in with any other config styles in
MailScanner. Just a thought to throw into the pot.
