Please don't top post.
Unfortunately, that lessens your chances of being able to submit code to
the Wine project. I don't know what the Wine project's policy is on
such things, it is ultimately Alexandre Julliard's call as the de-facto
But prior access to competing, proprietary closed-source code puts FLOSS
projects at increased legal risk, especially when the closed-source
company is making serious public statements about starting law suits
over patents. Double especially when that company is Microsoft.
