I just got a new idea:

Instead of appliying new patches to old versions which is unmaintainable
imho, we could have VMWare installs of Wine and people could download
the VMWare image of any Wine release and play it for free using the
VMWare player !

I guess the download size will be quite big, but a small distro with
only X, Wine, Gnome and KDE and required dependencies for example could
fit on half a CD I guess.
