If my memory serves me right, the mfc lib has to be redistributed with the
WINE, the
wine only provides the a lower layer w32 calls that MFC uses.

We would need to create a lib that replaces mfc, providing the end user all
the functions signatures that they need, but implementing the functions
using free tools like wine, gnome etc.

At least on the link level, not on the header file level for the beginning.

Does anyone have the MFS lib that is not under the redistribution
One that is compiled for dot-net, but is under the older version of the End
User licence?
That can still be redistributed, right?

Is the a program that would extract all the function signatures from DOTNET
dll, can we get all
the classes and interfaces from mfc that way?
We could try to start creating a description of the link level interface of
all the methods
and functions on the level of the user of MFC.

Then create some form of wrapper that you can link to.

Of course it would be lots of work to implement, but if that is what we have
to do.......

Otherwise, MFS does not change that often, so we can start by using the
redistributable version and
then make patches as we go along to implement the newer features.

Does this sound like too much work or a flawed idea?
