	Wine is a _re_implementation .. 90% of the code we write is double
work, triple work sometimes .. It doesn't bother me that we had to
rewrite something, since after all that is what we do.. Wouldn't we have
it easy is Microsoft would just release their source? The real question
is, if Wine was GPL'd would TransGaming have written the DCOM code in
the first place?
