Hi all,

I'd like to suggest to add the following janitorial projects for Wine:

1. Fix Wine to be compilable by a 64-bit compiler
    a) before accomplishing this task read a good article about porting Win32
       code to Win64.
    b) inspect and fix all public Win32 headers to match PSDK definitions.
    c) make sure that pointers do not get truncated.
    d) add support for Win64.

2. Fix wrong assumptions in Wine about endianess.
    a) inspect all Wine code and public headers to eliminate endianess dependent
       constructs (low/high parts of a field, bit fileds), add WORDS_BIGENDIAN
       when appropriate.
    b) make sure that Wine code handles data in an endianess independent way.
