This is true, however, some of the external interfaces with programs that depend on clamav were changed in the the 0.9x series and so while clamav works fine, it may fail to work WITH some of the programs that depend on it. As and example, neither the clamtk nor the klamav versions in Dapper will ever think they found a virus with a clamav 0.9x program. Server programs (like clamsmtp) will generally work. We are working on testing all the different dependencies to see how best to deal with an official backport.
