I've never read the original announcement of this Reaction project 
(where to find it?), nor the responses of it, but it seems to me that 
it's easier to include ReactOS into some distribution that you're 
making/releasing yourself,
than trying to add 3rdparty programs/projects to the ReactOS sourcecode 
repository (which, if I remember correctly, prefers just C [MSVC/GCC) 
and in troublesome cases assembly [NASM?]).
Downside is you'd have to synchronize regularly the updated ReactOS code 
into your own project.

On another subject..any news regarding the release of 0.3.11? A lot of 
work has been done since 0.3.10 but no idea if 0.3.11 would enable 
Firefox/Openoffice to work properly as originally planned.
