More antivirus fun...

Sweet.  Just upgraded on my test box.  It's sure getting painless to do so!

One quick question.  The upgrade process asked "Do you wish to install the Sendmail::Milter interface? [yes]"  I said yes as that was the default, but wasn't really sure what the implications of that are.  I'm running Postfix, but don't yet want to convert from the old way of using MailScanner with Postfix to the milter just yet.  I presume that using the default was the appropriate selection is this case, correct?  

root at mxt:~# dpkg -l | grep -i milter
ii  libmilter1.0.1:amd64                  8.15.2-8                       amd64        Sendmail Mail Filter API (Milter)
