Haha, yea, I know the game. Never had too much of a problem with those sorts
of people.

That sounds interesting, I'd be willing to give it a shot.
@Henri: I'm always up for a challenge. Perhaps you could suggest a smaller
subset of the problem that would be more feasible to attempt in 2-3 months?
Perhaps a few effects rather than any significant chunk of them? Also, what
are you looking for in a proposal?

Here's the wiki for the problem I mentioned in my first post: . What's the current status on this
proposal? It sounds like a fairly major problem.

@Tony: I'm not sure I followed the subsequent discussion. Has your work been
incorporated into wine-git yet, or is that still pending?

Thanks again guys. And as before, all suggestions are appreciated!
