Oh sure, that's precisely why I suggested to Mike to send his opengl
stuff to wine-patches, so that there can be a wider discussion about

IMO sending a proposed patch is a good way to do that; of course you
don't want to spend 6 months working on something without consulting
others, but if it's just a couple of hours of work, I think "send
patch first, ask questions later" is a reasonable strategy. It's a lot
easier to debate the merits of the respective solutions when you can
actually see what the code looks like.
