Stupid question here, but wouldn't such a KLD work under both PC-BSD and 
FreeBSD?  Something that we could put into ports and make a dependency *of* 

I kinda hate to see us do a whole whack of work on the Wine side when the 
problem is a deficiency on our part that Solaris, MacOS X and Linux have 
already seemed to dealt with :(
