Virus Scanners

It may be nice to have the old wrappers available for download so they can be applied in the event someone is still using them, or for educational purposes.  Save reinventing the wheel.

If the scanner checks are the result of "Virus Scanners = auto", then maybe the thing to do is to deprecate that.   It's a nice little feature, but really, if one doesn't know what antivirus they have installed, maybe they shouldn't be running a mail server.  Easy enough to just specify "Virus Scanners = clamd" or some such.

I agree though that any scanners that are definitely past their "sell by date" should be pruned from the running code.
