That's good to know that some else already used SDL. I would love to get my hands on that code but you are saying they didn't open source it?
Using SDL has the benefit of getting wine running on many more platforms since SDL has a large platform support.
Any pointers to other companies who have used an SDL backend to Wine is extremely appreciated. I don't want to duplicate efforts if it can be avoided.

Of course Transgaming is anti-open source... errr.. well i take that back, they are pro Open Source as long as they can use it for profit without giving hardly anything back... so don't expect to be able to see any of their coding to how they did it.
