The thing is, we just don't trust the ReactOS
folks at the moment.  Perhaps if they can get
the SFLC to bless their audit, we could trust them

The stakes are pretty high;
if we include code, and it's later shown to be
tainted, the whole project could be endangered.
We can get along pretty well without any code
from ReactOS, so we probably should.  Risking
the project for the sake of getting a few functions
just doesn't seem worth it.

We're very happy to let ReactOS use Wine code,
though, there's no problem with that.
