I agree. I simply think any outside tools we develop should be used in
conjunction with a proposed formal standard. If the MS formats are
open there is no reason we cannot propose the usage of them, or a
variation on them as part of FreeDesktop making Wine play nicer with
everyone (mono and moonlight prove MS standards and formats can be of
use for Linux). I'll spend some of the copious amounts of free-time I
have at work researching for formats and we can continue the propose
standard discussion off list later in the week.
