The libgdiplus for mono is implementing things quite differently.
I think its only working with mono.
We need to modify our wine code so that it works with mono. (You must
really ask Julliard for this) or modify libgdiplus of mono to work
with wine.
What I am saying is why re-invent the wheel, its already implemented
by mono project or we can keep a modified version of libgdiplus in our
sources. (This might cause some problems if you have mono installed).
Regarding the stub dll, how does mono install the gdiplus, if it
install the gdiplus as, it might be a problem.

Those are all my concerns.
