WineLib users are developers but in theory they should not need to 
interact with the Wine project developers to port their application, 
just like one is normally able to develop Windows applications without 
having to talk to the Microsoft developers.

So in that respect, having the WineLib documentation in French can help 
French companies port their Windows applications using WineLib.

There's still the issue of it being very outdated but it's already been 
translated and (with the .po system) throwing the current translation 
away won't reduce the work we have to do when the time comes to 
translate it.
