The issue is:

1. As far as I can see, unless you can point me to it, the latest
version of clamav is not in any of the relevant repos targeted for F7.

2. This means that you will have to deal with this clamav upgrade post
the F7 upgrade and face the same issues that you would face now on FC6
relative to config file breakage.

3. There are comments and pointers to scripts in the Bugzilla report
that I referenced, by me and others, relative to at least possible and
reasonable 'automated' upgrade processes during the RPM installation
procedures. As far as I and others can tell, Enrico seems to be
resistant to even exploring and testing these as possible options.

4. Take note of this post by Luca Gibelli of ClamAV a month ago,
relative to the burden being placed on their signature update servers by
users of versions prior to 0.90.x:

There are compelling reasons to upgrade beyond security patches and
related considerations.
