By way of compromise, and maybe keep Gav happy, would it make sense to
license those parts of Wine that have fairly well established
implementations as LGPL, and "stub dll's" as frre-for-all?  I know it is
a fuzzy distinction, and it could be a fair bit of work to actually do
it and I guess it would need to be adjusted continually...
