Yup, I'm dumb about it too.

My $.02: with our fancy new git system, could we branch Wine and start
developing a separate tree with a new DIB engine?  Apply patches to
both trees.  There probably won't be too many merge conflicts because
there's not a ton of work on GDI and x11drv these days.

Or maybe we could release a Wine 1.0 and start a development branch
with that as one of the goals.
