I dont know if this is a policy or just the way its always been. Just because it is in the CX tree
doesnt mean it will make it in to WINE when time for a merge comes. In a lot of cases codeweavers
will implement some very nasty hacks to make things work that you would not want in WINE because
it wont work in all cases.

Still I agree codeweavers people who folow this list should at least speak up when they know
someone is writting code that is already in CX and might get merged in. For the most part they
tend to be very active like with Mikes named pipe and SMB work.
