Yes, for antivirus checking.  I can't direct you on how development on those
plugins could be focused, but I'm sure there are listservs/people who could
help you with that.

I don't have any special inroads, but I'll send you the contact info for
Virustotal offline.

Hi, Frank.

We've not done so, but it's an interesting idea.  Would it make more
sense to focus on a plugin for sundry anti-spam and anti-virus products

We have a few more services to release first, though, so stay tuned.  :)

We work with with lots of folks, and are happy to work with even more.
Introductions or suggestions are always welcome!  Got a name or email
address handy?
