I have built in work arounds for Xquartz limitations, to easily launch in fullscreen mode or windowed, and change the resolutions for fullscreen.

Sorry..I didn't mean to pit them against each other. I think WineSkin sounds very interesting.. BTW a custom icon can also be put using WineBottler, but what interests me about WineSkin is the fullscreen part..(...thinking about counterstrike:P)

Neway keep up the good work..!!..I'm afraid I can't help you bcoz my Mac isn't at home and there's no Mac OS X on my Mac now:)..Windows 7 is the way to go.

Good luck..!!
