I agree with you and wish we could share more. I discussed abstracting
WINE user32/gdi32 and creating a Win32k.sys implementation for Wine so
we could try to hide the x11drv behind it but at the time Alexandre
does not seem very interested in the idea. The way it stands right now
while WINE is more correct in its functionality its implementation is
not 100% correct for the design we are trying to replicate. If we can
change this in WINE, then sure lets share even more and stop
duplicating work.
