Thanks for picking up the dib-engine issue.

The first thing, i like to see is a Design in the correct way:
Inside gdi32 while using Eng* and friends.
(Needed by Printer drivers, and any Display driver including mirror /
remote display drivers)

IMHO, every other attemp to implement a DIB-Engine is a waste of time.

Marcel did some work last Year during SoC with the correct API
(Eng* and friends) but also in the wrong location (he used wineddi.drv)
