I copied all copyright lines from a file if I took code from it to a new file. 
The only file "exception" is dlls/ddraw/direct3d.c in my new ddraw 
implementation, as I've re-written that file.

If I accidentally dropped someone's copyright line, just send me a note and 
I'll correct it. (Marcus, Lionel, Transgaming). But I'll try to get them 

My first plan was to check the authors of every function / code segment took 
over(There's not really much, except of thunks and old 
IDirect3DLight/Material/Viewport interfaces, where the whole files were 
copied), but that's almost impossible as ddraw was mainly coded in 1998-2000, 
and Wine-CVS starts in 2001.
