I don't believe you would have to spend all of your free time sitting
on a # winetools IRC channel. The channel could maintained by current
users.. You know, users helping users kinda thing. And if you guys
have some extra time to spend on the channel fine if you don't that
would be fine as well.
  The way it is now WineTools users don't have a mailing list, a IRC
channel or forum to ask questions or any real way to seek help other
than sending you a direct mail. And experienced users don't have any
of these venues to help people.

Just my $.02
