Marcus, a lot of those patches were already in the Wine ballpark. The

Correct. Somebody needs to just do it and see Wine Staging just as a
patch summary like https://source.winehq.org/regressions is the
regression summary. But instead of seeing it as an useful tool some core
Wine developers prefer to look at it as an evil fork and actively fight it.
