I think you completely miss what this is all about.  We are NOT creating 
an MSDN 'clone'.  Maybe a cleaned up duplicate of soared.org.  We do 
need to annotate, in one location, the project's findings and code that 
is pending implementation that was acquired through research of existing 
resources and validation through blackbox testing.

It is NOT our purpose to provide sample code or anything like it.   That 
is what MSDN is there for.  To assist Microsoft Developers working with 
Windows products to produce Windows programs.  Not to assist or aid any 
others in the pursuit of a 'look alike' API that just happens to run on 
UNIXy operating systems.

I agree with Alexandre, we don't need to hijack the wiki for Wine to do 
this.  Maybe we do need another wiki site that is separate from but 
equal to the current wiki, but for Wine developers/hackers only and 
their efforts to improve upon current Wine project efforts.
