It's not really that hard. The hard part is getting design accepted by AJ.
Raw Input has to heavily interact with wine server. And any changes there
are hard to get right and eventually accepted.
So, if you have an idea of how you want to do it. And this idea is good
enough to go in - that's fine. But be ready to completely redesign & re-code
some pieces if design won't be accepted.
