Sounds great :) Remember there may be people on the mono/wine lists you
can hire as well, if you wish to get external experience.

I noticed this too. It'd be nice to use UNIX style, that way you don't
end up with lots of ^M characters at the end of each line.


This is clearly going to be an issue. I'll fiddle with pkg-config and
submit a patch to wine this afternoon hopefully to make detection of
where wine is installed to more automatic.
