I would like to 'chime' in here.  If you have it local and it is not 
complete, why submit to the main program flow.  Create a bug and put it 
there.  Simple and it keeps the code tree "clean".  This allows others 
to become aware of what you are up to and can increase collaboration.   
Otherwise, your work becomes 'lost' and will never be complete.  I would 
NEVER submit anything to the tree that is not complete and ready for 
review by Alexandre.  I have been a victim of the dreaded drop, but that 
is not because the code I submitted was incomplete, but parts of it have 
become irrelivant because of changes to the tree.  So, I've had to back 
up and redo the work and then collaborate with the original submitter 
and have a peer review and then submit.  Hopefully this will be 
applicable to your project. 
Again, to summarize, if your code is not ready for Alexandre's review, 
open a bug, put your changes there, let the development list know and 
kick back and see what happens.  If you need help, submit your code and 
then let others help.  Don't expect things to happen overnight, 
sometimes it can take weeks or months.
Also, I am very interested in your work on winequartz, please let me 
know what the bug number is.
