Ah, I wasn't going to do it as a SoC project, but rather as a way to get a
feel for wine, directx, etc. over the next couple months (leading up to
SoC). Henri is suggesting that I not do so?

Anyway, if there are no objections, I'm willing to do it. Loic, you probably
have more experience, I'll cede to you if you want to work on it. There are
plenty of other things I can whet my teeth on.
