So do you think it would be a good idea to put Putty.exe into the wine 
package, because it's opensource?
Do you think it's wise, to package windows firefox together with wine, because 
it's opensource?

So, I think there must be a line between: a source which is a framework for 
running windows applications and windows applications, libraries itself.

Thinking about userland windows applications/libraries in a wine package, I, 
as packager would remove them. They don't belong to the original source 
package named wine.
