a copy of sophos-wrapper as sophos-av-wrapper and
"sophos-av" in  virus.scanners.conf and MailScanner.conf did not work.

sorry, i have no developer skills, i assume that it is no problem for 

---- /usr/lib/MailScanner/sophos-wrapper ----
##exec ${PackageDir}/bin/$prog "$@"
exec /opt/sophos-av/bin/savscan "$@"

sophos virusscanner-autodetection does not work if you have 
removed/renamed sav4.x
/usr/local/Sophos/  /usr/local/sav/  /usr/local/sav-install/

i have now sophos (only sav5.x) and clamav

---- /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf ----
#Virus Scanners = auto
Virus Scanners = clamav sophos

i tried different virii  *.com, *.exe, *.zip,  ....
~1 day and sav5.x seems to work without problems.

once again, i have no developper skills.

my understanding,
it should be no problem to add real  sav5.x  support in mailscanner for 
a developer but not me.
