	As I understand this, what you are asking has been a design goal for some time
now.  Since the DOS section is where I stay when I submit patches, I would like
to volunteer what limited assistence I can.  This looks like something which
would benefit wine.  Making the whole system more modular allows for easier
modification of the whole project and gives us a potential for special
modules.  This will also help developers to find the code that they are looking
for.  I had a horrid time adding the FPU interrupts because I couldn't track
down where to attach the interrupts.
	God Bless,
