Yes it is a bit of a FAQ, and the answers have mostly been along the
lines of "just use Winelib for non-Intel machines". Now it can be "...
and checkout the Darwine BOF".
Thanks for the links!

Supposedly Mac OS X already has the largest installed base of any single
*nix distribution and certainly is ahead of Linux on the desktop. So
there are easily as many potential users of Wine for Mac OS X as Wine
for X86-whatever. And Virtual PC has been popular & successful.

Yep, keeping things in sync will be important. In checking out Winehq
distrbution, I see that updates revolve arond the monthly tarballs. So
that's where we'll start and try to keep up-to-date with that.
Thanks for the encouragment!
