Agreed. I would be willing to invest some time this summer in a DIB
engine but it's impossible because of this. A wiki page describing the
"right design" and what is needed in which component would be a great
start. Maybe a goal for next WineConf?

I understand people are working on other important issues and that's
much appreciated, but it's frustrating that so much valuable time has
been spent on this (discussions and code) for years and see all
attempts hit the same brick wall.
