Sorry for jumping in so late.

Steven and I spoke about this the other day, and I am in agreement with
you, Dimitrie.  I don't want to fork.  We can use CVS to manage the wine
source, and hopefully we can submit patches if we manage to uncover any
bugs.  Regardless, we need to stay current with Wine development, and a
fork + manual merges is just impossible.  

We still have to figure out our header file situation, and Steven and I
continue to discuss alternatives.  Once we gain some clarity on that
situation, we'll probalby just do a cvs vendor import of wine and
refresh it regularly.

Does this sound workable to everyone?
