Dude chill with the hostility. Winehq currently provides no
functionality for Mac users...see here

No one is currently offering officially blessed Winehq builds whenever
Alexandre tags a release. There is no need in anyone to send patches
to Winehq for code that we know Julliard is going to reject. He stated
it to us during the Mac discussion at Wineconf in Redding that he
viewed Darwine as a separate project and should do its only bundling.
Basically anything done in Objective C he does not want in the tree
which includes half of the current winequartzdrv, the Darwine launcher
and Doc code and just about everything else.

If you want to review a patch, look at the patch for 0.9.48

And help further abstract user32/x11drv like has been done for Window
creation and Window positioning.
