MCI is complex system, with 16 and 32 bit interfaces and drivers, dating back
to at least Windows 3.1. The only way any patch is going to be integrated is if
it does the right thing, and the patches here are just hacks that work around
the problem. An investigation into what exactly Windows does is necessary, and
nobody has done it yet: you'd probably have to test each Windows version
individually. It is worth noting that Heroes of Might and Magic doesn't work on
eg. Windows 2000.

In the meanwhile, Heroes of Might and Magic is a long game with a high replay
value. IMHO it is well worth the time you put into patching and compiling a
separate Wine prefix just for it.
