[Request for feedback] Improved DirectX in Wine ports (packages available)

It has been requested by some community members that the custom DirectX patches by stefand  be integrated into the Wine port. As this requires a non-trivial amount of work I would like to assess the community's interest in these patches.
For those who do not know what these patches do: it is reported that they improve the performance of DirectX games and could possibly fix regressions on FreeBSD.
To try out the packages please either install the packages directly from the mirrors  or issue the following commands:
# mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos
# fetch -o /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos http://people.freebsd.org/~dbn/repos/wine-cs.conf
# fetch -o /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos http://people.freebsd.org/~dbn/repos/wine-cs.cert
# pkg update
# pkg install -r wine i386-wine-cs
The packages, although labelled 1.7.15 (for the Wine version they are based on) are based on cs-0.6.
If you find the packages useful, please report back to me. If there is sufficient support (i.e. enough people reply in the positive) then I'll publish the packages on a regular basis and maintain the appropriate ports.
