I think you missed my point.
The thing is, I don't want people to be able to recompile their own
version of a project of mine, because I want to be the only place where
people get the binaries. There's also the problem of backspaceware but
it's another story.
Now, when I said "can't-distribute-but-can-be-used-for-WINE license",
what I really meant was that, I'd give the necessary raw code for
integration into WINE (it'd have to be modified a lot), but once it gets
into WINE, it's WINE code and goes by the WINE license. And therefore,
if somebody wants to take that BACK from WINE, and make their own
TDEmu.dll, or anything else for that matter, I don't care at all.
