SoC idea: connet to clamav

Another idea for Summer of Code that strikes me as 
useful and doable:

- Virus Scanner Support

  WINE is currently one of the ways a UNIX user runs code downloaded
  from the network. This code is also known to be more often viral infected,
  might contain worms, or spyware.

  There exists an OpenSource virus scan engine called ClamAV which could
  be hooked into WINE, for instance via CreateProcess() or LoadLibrary()
  or other places.

[There is however a small license problem. Clamav is GPLed, while WINE
 is LPGL.]

Ciao, Marcus
