I already asked Austin about that for my GSoC proposal:

I've since decided against GSoC for this year, but my idea revolved 
around improving cmd's parser, notably getting Firefox/Chromium and/or 
other software to build under wine (or at least, isolate 
potential/existing issues to non-cmd parts). I was partway through 

Dan Kegel seemed pretty interested in the project. If you're interested 
you could e-mail him.
