the main reason it is currently a variant instead of part of the normal
distribution is stability - ie it hasn't been tested enough. It's not
fair to break valgrind for all the people who aren't using WINE...

if we can get some of the WINE developers to use it a bit (hint hint) then
we can sort out any bugs and hopefully get a full merge into valgrind.

I suspect what will actually happen is that the generic parts of the patch will get
merged into the main valgrind tree first, then the WINE specific stuff will
be a no-brainer at some point.

Real Programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write,
it should be hard to read, and even harder to modify.
These are all my own opinions.
