and on other places there is mentioned, that the way to audit is, to look at 
the ReactOS-Source-Code, look if it looks understandable.

The problem is, that is possible, that people disasseble MS-Windows-code and 
port then the Assembler-Code in stupid C code.
And - because  (not clean room) reverse engineering isn't allowed - all 
code, which looks stupd will be eliminated.

That was also discussed in a german forum. There someone have at
discribed, how a normal C program can be compiled to assebler code and an 
other people create stupied C code, where you can see, that it was reverse 

But in the same forum, someone have mentioned, that there existing 
decompiler like Boomerang
which creates from binary code logical, easy to read C code. (Don't know 
before, that something like this exists).

Have a look at

I want with this mail only to say, that it would be very hard to find the 
reverse engineered code (if there existing one).
