[Wine] 3D sound/effects state of things

Hi all!

Concerning 3D sound effects in games (3D positional and echo etc. 
effects), what's the state of things in Wine?

I don't know how Windows is handling 3D sound since I didn't play in 
Windows for ages. Searching on the net I found that it seems that dsound 
handles positional as well as other (echo etc.) effects, possibly 
accelerated in hardware.
Quickly looking at Wine sources, it looks like none of this is really 
implemented? So no ds3d echo and positional effects in Wine? Any solution 
in sight?
