Shim vs. abstraction layer
vs. Wrapper library
"shim" sounds like a very local term.. I've never heard anyone use it as a professional programmer dealing with web services, SOAP apis and the like for the last several years.
If Wine is a shim, than a shim can hardly be a "small library", can it? Also, the [[Wine (software)|Wine] article states it's a compatibility layer. So I propose removing Wine from the list of shims. Jalwikip (talk) 08:40, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
