That was an example of what TransGaming might be willing to exchange it
against, I don't think Gav made a commitment on that. But the ALSA driver
is not yet complete, and the situation changed since the suggestion was
first made; Eric used to be on the Wine side ("against" TransGaming), and
was willing to write the ALSA driver in exchange for getting more AFPL-ed
code into Wine, but that was before Wine was LGPL-ed. Now, Eric is on the
ReWind side ("against" Wine), so now he is also interested in getting more
LGPL-ed code into ReWind. What he'll exchange the ALSA driver for will
depend on his priorities, but the deal certainly needs renegotiation in
any case.

What is most important for TransGaming now, is to see the DLL separation
work get into ReWind. He's making a list of things to trade it with, such
as a DIB drawing engine, fast DIB sections using ShmPixmaps, this COM
stuff I'm working on, and of course various DirectX things. Since I've
researched and worked on this COM thing (with undocumented stuff all over)
for months, I doubt TransGaming would settle with just an ALSA driver, now
that their development costs have increased from the forking.
