Make Real time scanning - Local files and network shares applicable on Linux

Apparently the policy setting:
"Real-time scanning - Local files and network shares" that can be configured for:
on read
on write
only applies to Windows clients and not to Linux clients. On Linux you have to manually change the preference using eg:
/opt/sophos-av/bin/savconfig set TalpaOperations -- -open
to disable "on read"
But obviously:
1. This is not scallable
2. This makes the Linux Sophos AV impaired in terms of feature comparison to Windows
3. It's very problematic on eg. NFS servers where on open NEEDS to be disabled due to high CPU usage that sophos processes may spark.
