I do not agree Wine developers can ignore threads that they are not interested 
in if they wish. However they may be interested in development of these 
resources. I look at it as being the same as discussions on bugzilla, winecfg, 
the AppDB or the Wiki.

I agree that this would be useful to wine developers if the AppDB had this, even 
  if nothing else comes out of this discussion.

One other consideration to take into account when dealing with dll overrides is 
that we cannot assume that everyone is legally entitled to use just any dll. It 
should be the is the responsibility of each individual to make. sure they are 
entitled to use them.
