I am just using the keywords 9xism or unixism ATM
because that is what most of the problems are. There
really isnt that many problems due to wines
portablity. As I have said I think psapi is the most
fubar'd one we have to deal with if we want to try and
share it. One of the ReactOS developers is rewriting
it for ReactOS anyway and I think he will LGPL/X11 it.
Once that is done if wine will implement the needed
exports of ntdll then we can contribute that back.

I agree. All of the reports I am doing are going under
Win2k or NT. I host on 2k and ReactOS is kinda
expanding its goals to include some of the nicer
things of 2k like acpi and wdm.

I'm not to worried about it ATM as there are not that
many problems. If it gets to be to much I'm sure our
bugzilla guys will let me know. =)
