they did not open source their SDL or mac quartz drivers they use, just as much of their stuff is not... but their wine fork was forked off so long ago, it might be vastly different than needed now... and it was Mac OS X only so... it might be better to start from scratch anyways. SDL has a large performance boost in graphics over X11 on Macs.
