There won't be much to test on the new release. As of 0.93 the clam source
dropped several items and replaced (most) with new. The latest Mail::ClamAV
will depend on the new vars when it pulls libclamav so it's not going to
work below version 0.93. This is the reason it must be updated everytime the
clam developers change the internals in a non-backward friendly way (which
is about every time)
