If they do so I believe we need to petition SourceForge to drop WineX as
clearly not even kinda free.  I for one don't think they should be getting
a free ride when it comes to stuff that can't even be packaged by the
various distributions.

I would call for such a petition now, except that Transgaming is still
effectively pretending their license allows redistribution.
