This is describing a well-understood approach to adding a new DLL. I 
think the SoC project needs to push the participant to be creative and 
solve  a significant obstacle in wine development, which others find 

Yes, I am sure wine will benefit greatly from a d3d10 stub, mapping 
1-to-1 to wined3d where possible, but is it really a project that 
requires a lot of creativity and the whole summer to do ? I think 
something that adds new functionality and can't mirror d3d8/d3d9 would 
be better.
