As anyone who attended the last WineConf probably already knows, you 
have my complete sympathies in that regard. I also doubt very much 
anyone would use your uncommitted patches against your will, so in that 
respect, you probably have nothing to worry about.

That said, I believe your claim to the right to demand no use is wrong. 
It is my understanding that by submitting your patches to wine-patches, 
you have placed them under the LGPL, which is a non-revocable license. 
Again, in all likely hood, this is a purely hypothetical question.
