Thanks for the diagnosis. Is it something that someone is working on,
but just not finished, or is it something that nobody is really
attacking at the moment? The status system on the website suggests it
is 60% complete, and it was last mentioned in WWN #117, but that isn't
necessarily a guide to activity on it.

Is it something that someone not steeped in the magic of Wine/Windows
might be able to hack on? If it is practical for me to do so in my
limited spare time, I would happily write code in exchange for guidance...
