Just a thought, why not create a bug in bugzilla where people can post which
apps/games/utils work nearly (if not) perfect instead of having ten million
emails.  1 bug for apps, 1 for games, and 1 for utils.

Also, Mark: Diablo II may not work out of the box, but then again it is kinda
hard to get copy protection code that works right without getting a license
for it *cough* transgaming *cough* cheaters *cough* ;P ...

Either way, the cracked exe works, and I have a shell script that performs
the function of the bnet loader, so I can play on BNet all I want.  Only
problem is when Blizzard releases 1.1 :/ ...  Then we gotta wait for the
groups to recrack it.  I definitely say we should have minimal copy
protection support in the tree for the most popular games before wine 1.0
comes out.

Anyways, getting back to the original subject, I am creating the bugs right
now for games apps and utilities...
