Paul's message was very specific, asking about a versioning interface (which
I would have loved to have, too, instead of trying to guess in code what
version of Wine I might be dealing with). If very reasonable API requests
are being refused while it is still under heavy development why would those
be granted once 1.0 is reached? And, thus, how is working down the TODO
going to help his request?

With SWF we luckily have a choice whether or not use use Wine, we tried with
and it didn't quite work out, so now we're gonna try without. Paul isn't as
lucky, his code is dependent on the Win32 API.
I would have thought that Alexandre is exited that his code is being put to
new, cool uses even he never imagined...

With that I should probably stop participating in this thread, since it's
really not contributing to SWF development :-)
