windres vs. wrc

I've just discovered (DUH!) another free resource compiler:
This one is part of binutils. Now, like any good hacker, I
hate such code duplication. Granted, I haven't looked through
the code of windres, so I can't say if it's any good.
However, here are some points to ponder:
-- all Win32 free software projects out there use windres, not wrc
-- for this reason, it is like it's more generic / better maintained
-- do we want eventually to phase one of them out?
-- their command line arguments are incompatible. This causes
problems when trying to build portable Makefiles.
Should we try to be command line compatible with windres, so
we are a drop in replacement (for the .rc/.res -> .o conversion)?
Any windres experiences? Comments?
