Clamav it's an important package and I think it need to be the latest
possible for any ubuntu release
I think the alternate repository can work using not clamav-alt but
clamav-feisty-latest clamav-edgy-latest clamav-dapper-latest
or just keep the latest for the current LTS and current Version as this
or let's name latest-universe
There's PostgreSQL, in feisty we can have postgresql8.2 and 8.2 in
dapper 7.4 and 8.1
using this approach I think there are other packages that need to be the
latest not only for clamav
