I don't know how the viruses are tracked, but maybe to reduce size (if
applicable) some of the more ancient viruses that only affect EOL
operating systems (or programs that should have long since been
patched) could be spun-off into a separate definition file (that could
be optionally disabled)? Seems like it would be quite a waste of
resources for most if there were like a million definitions that only
affected Windows XP or Office 2003 or something like that...
