This suggestion will most likely get null'd as it has before but since
there are still patches accepted by ReactOS developers from time to
time, it would seem to make more since to me to just prepackage a
winelib build or binary build of their cmd.exe somewhere. It's mostly
feature complete and is derived from FreeDOS and a large
chunk of the development work on it was done by former CodeWeaver Eric

We (reactos developers) toyed with the idea of spawning some of the
subprojects off in the past, so perhaps we could create a new
sourceforge project, something along the lines of FreeCMD and move the
project and revision history there. Linking to it as a separate
project package is not that much of a stretch from how we do things
with Gecko.

Having a comprehensive test suite written for the scripting language
makes sense but the duplicated effort to re-implement the whole app
never has given there are already shared tools in the winehq tree such
as regedit and taskmgr unless you are ready to propose that they be
ripped out.
