A long time ago the FUSE developers said something about implementing
write-through stacking for FUSE (i.e. 'sudo fusermount -o allow_other
encfs / /' would allow mounting on /, and encfs could read/write under
its own mount point).

Wouldn't that make more sense? You could i.e. edit /etc/avfs.conf to
say "scanner=clamscan" "clamscan=/usr/bin/clamscan" and mount avfs
on /...?
