Well, no idea. The scanning will finish with exit code indicating that it
was not able to scan the whole structure.

There used to be ArchiveBlockMax option that instructed clamav to report
infection (with pseudo virus name) but it was removed and I don't see the
replacement for it.

I also don't see how should clamav-milter behave here.

Maybe I should try to test scanning archive of 16 nested directories to see
the results...
