That's not what I was implying. I was just asserting that your claim of wine not being a good emulator (which it isn't) was false. ABI translation layers are complex beasts, but the gaol is to get this and just about every other program working. To discount the idea that wine isn't good enough (it runs other games just fine, even though some pay special mind to wine's, uh, special needs) is just a bit offsetting.
Really what this boils down to, and what you've stated, is that we (the consumers) should not expect any support in the form of wine testing, or any other clients for any other systems.
All of that is fair, your product, your priorities. You've got to cater to the masses before you throw scrapes to the few.
