You know, discussing is a good thing and the end result is often 
positive so no one want to hush you up.
In principle, people expose their point of view and argue with evidences.

Saying "I have enough background" then "[I'm] far from an expert" and 
previously "check with a
*copyright* lawyer" means "I don't know but believe me" so that's not a 
valid argument.
Do you have any test case [proving there's a need to fix something] ?
If so, we could reconsider your patch.
If not, it's then gratuitous.

Using CAPITALS! and *bold words* is not a good behaviour.
I don't know you but reading your responses makes me think you're a 
child crying and shouting for having some candies.
Don't take it bad, it's just my [personal] impression.

If you want to discuss, accept others arguments and reply calmly with 
AJ position is quite clear : wine aims to be [bug-for-bug] compatible 
with Windows.

Finally, do you know basetds.h is a public header ?
