GAV - use exclusion list but still scan data

Here's the problem. Multi-compressed ZIP files are blocked. We frequently need to download ZIP files containing images and PDF files. And they are treated as multi-compressed ZIP files and thus get blocked. As a work-around, I add the site containing such files to the exclusion list. As a result, files downloaded from those excluded sites aren't scanned at all. Not exactly what I want. I want them excluded from being blocked - not excluded from scanning. Simple solution: just switch off Blocking of multi-compressed ZIP files. Don't want that either - I just want the ability to exclude certain sites from blocking multi-compressed ZIP files.

I'm afraid there's no easy solution, but you never know if you don't ask?

    I believe you have to submit feature requests through your local rep, but maybe @fmadia can elaborate.
