Hi everyone,

has this patch been rejected?  If so, could anyone tell me why?

Yes, I know that neither the API, nor the include files are ideal yet,
but fixing it would produce a really huge patch, which is AFAIK
something you don't like at all.

Anyway, with this patch and my other patches applied (including one to
the Linux kernel, which was accepted in 2.6.15), I can now run Kindler
Literaturlexikon with Wine.  And I'd enjoy adding that application to
the appdb.
