I understand your concern.  However, until Xorg 1.6 becomes a reality
and is released by the XQuartz folks, there will be little, if any,
activity to fix things that are broken by it.

However, my first piece of advice should be followed, let the XQuartz
folks know that Xorg 1.6 broke Wine for the Mac.  They are concerned
about breakages of any program that runs on X11.
