Like Graham Murray has said (just not in reply to this message) that's what 
quarantining is for.  Speaking for myself, it would be handy if there were 
'layers' of poisoning; things on poison list 1 get /dev/null'd, things on 
poison list 2 get quarantined to /var/whatever.

That way, I could manually check multi-extension documents (most of which 
appear to be idiot lUsers who don't know better) without having to manually 
dump all the other stuff I otherwise poison (*.exe, *.com, *.bat, *.cmd, 
*.mp(g|eg?) so on and so forth...)

Just a thought.
