The problem we have with people making and shipping winelib apps at this point is that with every
release of WINE untill 1.x we will have breakages. If you want to help people that produce OSS
windows applications support WINElib then for now, at least untill 1.0 we can only support
building winelib apps and not binary winelib applications.
