If you've found a problem with winedbg, or a certain feature is
missing, then file a bug.


All the rest of your wish list, and I'm pretty sure I didn't miss
anything, has nothing to do with Wine in particular, or there is
nothing that can be changed in Wine itself to accommodate your wishes.
 Most of your wishes sound like IDE integration problems that need to
be brought up with those particular projects.

I absolutely agree with Kai on the difficulty level.  The threshold
for Wine development is very high.  If an interested developer can't
get anything done without the items on your wish list, then how can he
successfully hack on Wine?  General development skills are just the
door to Wine development.  Once you walk through that door, fixing
Wine is a whole other can of worms.
