Could open source anti malware help Windows?

Two of my colleagues -- Jim Rapoza, eWEEK Labs director; and Larry Seltzer, eWEEK Security Center editor and all-around security guru -- have been writing recently about open-source's failure to produce kick-ass Windows anti-virus programs.

Jim laments that while ClamAV, easily the most well-known open-source anti-virus program, works just fine on email gateways, it's Windows client, ClamWin, just doesn't cut the mustard, since it doesn't scan in real-time. Could open source anti-malware help Windows?
