Thanks for the information ;-)

Now we have a winpcap wrapper:

With the winpcap wrapper's builtin packet.dll.so, we can bypass npptools.dll.
It already works with some version of Dr.com.

Once the winpcap wrapper is getting more complete, we'll clean up and split the
code and send patches to wine-patch.

A quote of our discuss with AJ:

In theory yes, assuming that someone can demonstrate a credible way to
implement it. I don't want to add just a bunch of stubs if there's no
hope that it can be properly completed.
