Allow me to add #3.

Quoted from David Morton off the Maia MailGuard users mailing list:

"The current state of things has a replacement for amavisd-new, called
amavisd-maia.  That means that the default amavisd-new can be left in
place, but inactive, while amavisd-maia runs on a slightly modified
amavisd.conf (but I assume an upgrade to amavisd-new package would not
actually modify the amavisd.conf, would it?)."

3.  Create a port named amavis-maia.
