ClamWin as a Service

I've had a quick scan of this forum, and seen that a ClamWin service is scheduled for the ClamWin 1.0 product. When is that due (roughly).

If it is some tima away, then I will try to create a service for the current ClamWin product. This will address my two most pressing problems:

1. Need for a central config rather than a per-user config

2. Ability for scheduled scans to be run, even when no-one is logged on to the machine (ie, overnight).

Let me know if it would be worth my while doing this, or is 1.0 close enough that I should just be patient and wait?

1) there is no unique way to do this, most likely you'll need to apply registry keys to al machines, we'll use windows registry to store configuration
2) I think it will be trivial since the devel version we are working has different components, the scanner runs as service
then is active also when no one is logged, I personally never used scheduled jobs on windows, but I think alch knowns how to do (it's true alch?)

yes, v1 uses windows task scheduler and will run in user's context (logging in automatically)
