This by itself isn't a big problem, as long as they were being a
community player.  However, Transgaming has nearly completely halted
their policy of contributing code they develop back to the WINE project
under the MIT license, after making numerous promises and garnering a
significant subscription base for those promises.  My opinion is, screw
'em, and package their stuff even against their wishes, since they've
gone against ours.  If we're never seeing the code under a free license
anyway, what have we to lose?
