The only reason a change we make goes into CrossOver and
not WineHQ is because we know that Alexandre won't accept it.

In fact, we often bitch and moan about the @#$@#$@# Wine
maintainer <grin>.

So, it's certainly a good idea to try to get this functionality
into Wine, but be warned, each is usually a case where there
is a much harder/larger project needed to do it the 'right' way.
