Both of us could work on it until this summer, I believe there is enough
to do for two people. I may have more programming experience, but I
haven't done much in wine, and my last real Windows development dates
back 8 years, so we're both inexperienced in that respect.

I can't say if you should do it or not though. But if you have nothing
else to do in the meanwhile I suppose it can't hurt to get some
experience, even if your SoC subject isn't affected by this work in the end.

Yes I expected that. The good part of it is that it's only texture code.
Hopefully it doesn't use a codec that wine doesn't have yet and can
become a good test case for the integration work. Otherwise it can still
be something to aim for after integrating your work.
