I never told anyone they should work on anything.  I've got an idea for
a processor emulation technique to enable Intel Windows applications to
run on PowerPC Mac OS X with high efficiency.  My project plan to use
Intel Darwin to port Wine (one of the necessary steps) has worked out
beautifully.  Did you notice it won the 2006 Sourceforge Community
Choice Awards in the Desktop Environment category?

I'm looking forward to Wine for Intel Mac OS X development moving to
WineHQ so Darwine's focus can return to the interesting part.

Actually the only complaint I've made has been about you. I appreciate
you making it clear to everyone who's got the attitude problem here.

While I realize it was a long email, it's clear you got to the end.  The
point of the email was to make a suggestion for action at WineHQ,
creating a wine-macosx mailing list, having provided a sound
justification for it.
