It's good that POL is trying to help, and I've had many conversations
with them in the past.  They've always been friendly and interested
in my suggestions.

That said, the wine project can't support patched versions of wine.

So there's always going to be a little dynamic tension between the two projects.

(One thing POL isn't doing much of that would really help Wine is
following http://wiki.winehq.org/RegressionTesting to pinpoint which
wine change broke apps that used to work well with no patches.
Wine user Wylda excels at this; see for instance
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21154 and
That would demonstrate a real commitment to helping Wine.
It probably won't happen, since they have their hands full just keeping
POL going, and most POL scripters don't have the motivation or training
to do a real regression test.  But it would be wonderful if I were wrong.)
