I assume all this took place on IRC because unless I missed it,
Alexandre hasn't deigned to comment on here about what the
right architectural solution would be.

Sorry to sound like a stuck record but the Wine website still lists
"write a DIB engine" as a requirement, and every time someone
does, the patches dissapear down a hole because they're "not
right". Someone document what "would be right", or take "write
a DIB engine" off the list. I'd love to have a go at documenting it
myself, but I don't have the time to reverse engineer it from a
few years' worth of rejected solutions.
