  It sounds really very interesting! 
  Is your work accessible as a patch to the current wine tree, or as a git
branch somewhere ?
  I would like to test it with some of my apps (Nokia software, programmers
etc...) and give you a feedback, whether it works.
  Do you know, why Alexandre is not accepting your improvements ?

  With regards, Pavel Troller
