Well the esets_scan binary returns one of the following value:

       The esets_scan on-demand scanner returns the following values after
each scanning event:

       0      No threat found.

       1      Threat found and cleaned.

       10     Some files could not be scanned (may be threats).

       50     Threat found.

       100    Error.

So generally speaking will be not too difficult to integrate it.
The issue with eset is that as said before the performance penalty
