I've investigated how to add the additional scripts and It seems quite
I also think it would be 100% safe to add amavisd-nanny (script that
checks the status of amavisd-new).
After looking into amavisd-release and amavisd-agent (a script to get
the status for amavisd-new in a snmp-able way), I realized that both are
marked as examples. The scripts look quite stable and robust, but I'm
not a perl programmer.
I know several people who use these stock examples for production use,
however I don't know it makes sense (from a packagers POV) to add these
scripts to the package. 
Any help (i.e. telling me what to do) would be appreciated.
