So once ported, will the higher level dlls from wine function on a
system? Ole*, Commdlg, Comctrl, shfolder, shlwapi, mapi, twain and
Are the target of my port.

I guess I should have been a little clearer. Wines Gdi32, user32 and
are not to much of a concern for me. ReactOS has its own implentation 
of Gdi32 and Kernel32 and most of the user32 functions are just
Forwards to Win32K.sys anyway. I understand that they are not going to 
Just a recompile + minor patch or two. The core ReactOS developers have 
adapted large parts of wines user32 functions in to our Win32k.sys  
However we are still lacking the default window proc and messaging.

Sounds like fun. If I ever get done with the mingw side I will have
Project to beat my head over.
