Assigning a virus scanner to a policy bank (AV: Not an ARRAY reference...)

I'd like to use different virus scanners for different policy banks, but I
fail to specify them correctly in a $policy_bank.

>From reading amavisd-new code I can tell @av_scanners is part of
'dynamic_confvars' and that makes it a candidate for per-policy bank settings,
but how do I do specify the virus scanner?

Here's what I have at the moment, which causes errors:

$interface_policy{'10024'} = 'avira';
$policy_bank{'avira'} = {
    av_scanners => ['Avira SAVAPI', \&ask_daemon,
                    ["*", 'savapi:/var/run/avira/savapi.sock', '000000'],
                    qr/^(200|210) /m,  qr/^(310|420|319) /m,
                    qr/^(310|420) (.+?) ; \S* ; (?:.*)$/m ]

It causes these log messages:

Jun 12 11:52:23 scanner amavis[19678]: (19678-19) (!!)AV: Not an ARRAY reference at (eval 125) line 919.
