Many of my milters have undocumented options, because either they are 
experimental, late additions, or possibly-evil-bad-choices. The complete 
list of options is given by the usage summary:

	milter-NAME_HERE -help | more

clamd-max-size is one option I debated about. The clamd.conf has a size 
limit option also. I left it undocumented because I'm unsure what 
happens if clamd expects a full message and milter-clamc only sends the 
  N first bytes and then signals EOF; particularly interesting when 
dealing with archive file attachments. I've not had time to test those 
cases to be sure that clamd behaves as I expect when it sees the EOF 
(closing of client-to-server half of the socket).
