But neither does the keep-it-borken approach work, does it? :)
Problem is that the breakage is not large enough to motivate
people. I think we have to come to terms with the fact that Wine
is big, and doing things right is not always an option.

I seems to me that we'd be better off to have a working
but not-so-perfect solution, rather than wait for years to
have the perfect one. 

Of course, I agree that you can not merge any solution in, 
that road leads to madness. But we have to balance that
with the fact that we have to be useful by offering the
functionality that people need or want.

Otherwise wine will become irrelevant before it becomes 
useful. And that would be a shame.
