We need more people working on app compatibility! :) Maybe we can choose
some apps that are "nearly there" and get people to solve the last few
bugs or alternatively make one of the projects "Bring any 3 apps up to
Gold status in the appdb".

Really not enough Wine hackers these days (IMHO) bash away and fixing
popular apps ... we have a lot of infrastructure and janitorial work going
on at times, as well as filling out DLLs - all this is important but being
able to run apps doubly so!
