Nooooooooo, Wine 1.0 is ethereal enough as it is. The last thing we need
is to be piling even more work onto it :) 0.9 has already suffered serious
feature creep it seems, how did the WM rewrite get in there? 1.0 should be
about libwine API stability IMHO, there will always be new DLLs that can
be added.

Having said that I expect it would not be too hard to write a
riched20.dll, I think it mostly forwards/wraps to our current
implementation. The richedit is a huge bag of pain though as especially
the later versions are basically miniature word processors. Currently we
bodge the lack of this badly. We're going to need to look at this at some
