The explanation is here:


1. Darwine is a separate project with different licensing terms from Wine (GPL vs. LGPL), 
2. it's not clear what kind of patches they apply on top of Wine, 
3. the fact that they insist on a different name

And promises to rename the product to Wine and change the licensing
differences still do remain promises.
