Well, I didn't care too much about you helping us out (which would be great,
though). I'm bothered much more about TG not meeting their stated goal
and thus possibly releasing the winex extensions back to wine in part only.

Yep, you didn't. It just fits into the picture :)

OK, now I'm the one to ask tough questions :)
Did I ever mention evil being related to making too much money ?
I thought you'd see it as "not spending more money on something because
it's evil", not as "it's evil because somebody is making too much money".

I guess they don't bother: CVS is *way* more useful anyway.
You really don't want source snapshots, believe me.
Well, at least not if they're periodically created snapshots of the
usual unstable mess ;) that's called wine instead of being carefully
built source to make sure it's at least sort of stable :)
