You are amazing.  If iTunes 7 can be made to work by 0.9.45 (or 0.9.46),
it can make it into Ubuntu Gutsy.  Seeing as how iTunes is consistently
one of our top 5 demanded apps, the improvement from the user's
perspective will be palpable.

Combined with everything else the team has been doing lately, I can just
see the buzz: "Wow, Wine really is improving quickly and starting to
"just work."
