Clam is a pretty powerhungry application, to begin with, which doesn't
really go well with the whole m0n0wall philosophy. It's also not a
core firewall thing, it's something that IMHO falls outside the normal
duties of a firewall. So, speaking as a normal m0n0 user who is
speculating wildly ;) I doubt it will be integrated as it would drive
up size a lot and require really beefy hardware to work well in any

On my mail filtering Solaris box, clamd is using up over 40MB of
memory, which would be a huge chunk for m0n0 to swallow.
