One observation is that Sebastian and Michael from wine-staging can currently
generate way more input of good patches (even if not Alexandre style perfect)
than Alexandre can currently take on.

They are also good in picking up lots of small patches that are otherwise left.

So wine-staging can currently take more input that regular Wine and so can
progress faster.

So part of the problem is a input-bandwith problem I think.

(One part)

Ciao, Marcus
