This is kind of off topic but I have been pondering this for a while. Is 
someone working on Xdnd in WINE? I emailed  Jean-Claude Batista about 
his work for Corel using OLE with Xdnd but I dont think anyone is 
working on this in WINE atm. I would be nice if we could get some sort 
of OLE <-> Xdnd bridge going that is portable. That way the KDE on 
Cygwin and GNOME on cygwin people could use it also on X for Mingw/Cygwin.
