I agree. The potential security issues that have been fixed would
(from what I understood) specifically target Wine. Targeting Wine
1.0.1 would be... pretty restricted. I don't think it's worth
investing time for something like this when 1.2 is coming soon.

I haven't followed recent discussions about it, but it seemed to me
the DIB engine got the most efforts and work done lately. If it's
accepted and starts being usable, it'd be great
