being accepted; quite the contrary.

No, not really. winealsa.drv works just fine with PulseAudio too.

They should stop voting for a redundant feature. If they want to have it 
they should help make the patch *PERFECT*. That's about the only chance 
the patch has to get in.

Just taking and old version of the winealsa.drv and replacing "ALSA" 
with "PULSE" doesn't cut it. And the patch already bitrotted.
