That's not the way Open Source development works. If you want it so bad - code it yourself, or convince someone to do it. Telling them they are an idiot won't help.

You can hack all you want a commercial product. But this is not acceptable in the FOSS world. It should be done right or not at all.

There were number of cases when detecting Wine and doing something different eventually broke the application on Wine. So this solution is not viewed as acceptable one by the Wine community.
