How are we doing?

Speaking from the viewpoint of a new wine developer, the major hurdle, in my 
view, to contributing to wine is the lack of comments in the code, and the 
lack of whitespace. Wine is complicated enough, and the lack of comments in 
the code makes it more  difficult. When trying to trace existing code to see 
how things work, there are very few comments to go off of. This hinders 
things, especially when trying to understand things that don't have any 
documentation written for them. Parts of wine might have one or two comments 
spread throughout the page, if you don't count the copywright info at the 
top of the page.
