1) CONTRA: avcheck faster that drweb-postfix:
  - drweb-postfix is loaded at each message
  - avcheck is loaded one time during system start

2) PRO: drweb-postfix has some useful features:
  - users list (who should be checked)
  - blocking notifications to some addresses (for example only to
    local users)
  - blocking notifications by virus name (extremely useful against
    Klez and others Mass Mail Worms which fakes addresses)
  - and more, more ...
