Eventually, when SWF really progresses well, will the Wine people actually modify the wine source so that the patches will be no longer necessary?
Cause for the mainstream linux user, it's going to be annoying to download wine, then apply patches, etc..... just to get an SWF app working.

Did we communicate with winehq about the situation?
