I agree 5...c6!? is another good system for Black. In previous posts, I tried to look at system where White has bishop pair and c2-c3 pawns like in my simul game with Nataf: 5...Nc6 6.a3 Bxc3 7.bxc3 Be6!?

You guys don`t even mention 5.c6  Tongue, which, according to www.chesslab.com, scores 26% for white, 26% for black, 47% draw, and which is "recommended" by Neil Mcdonald in one of the games given here on Chesspublishing.

I am going to have to disagree with you. How can 8...Qd7 be good for Black n any way whatsoever. I know you French players have a blatent disregard for the QB, but that takes the biscuit. Whare is that Bishop going to go?

After 7...Nge7 8.Qf3 (Larsen and Kavalek-Yussupov,Dubai 1986 - Psakhis and Informant #42) I'll try to play 8..Qd7 because on 8...Be6 White can play 9.Rb1 and force b6 when ooo becomes stranger.
About 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.exd5 Qxd5 6.Nf3 Kuzmin tried 6...Bd7!? (Razuzaev-Kuzmin,URSS 1972) but I don't trust that move and I prefer 6..b6!? Malbran-Gurevich,Phidaldelphie 1989 (Psakhis).

7... Nge7 8. Qf3 and after moves like Rb1 and Ne2-g3 it will be hard for Black to get his Bishop out. Meanwhile White will stick a piece on f5 and mate Black.

There is a good line for White after 4...Qxd5 but I cannot remember it offhand - I will try and find it and post it on the site.

What are the best replies ? One question but too many answers.
Winawer exchange for White is commonly used by strong french players such as I.A.Nataf and I played one game with him as Black  (Dieppe simul 2001).
From an historical point view the White system was a common weapon till Capablanca-Alekhine,Buenos Aires 1927 and Bent Larsen became famous using Tartakower idea 5.Qf3 (read Larsen book about his best games).
System is interesting because you can play it as White, in the Winawer (Black can escape with 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.ed Qxd5) or in the Exchange.
After 5.Bd3 Nc6 there are 2 main choices for White: 6.Nf3 and 6.a3 (a3 was Nataf choice and the idea is to protect pawn center and use power of dark squares bishop). I prefer 6.a3 Bxc3 7.bxc3 Nge7! because the knight pin after Nf6 is source of disapointment since White center pawns, will not be blocked securely.
After 7...Nf6 White can try 8.Bg5 straightfully or just wait with 8.Rb1 or transpose with 8.Ne2 (knight is better on e2 square in order to go to g3 controlling important light squares). After 8.Ne2 oo 9.oo Bg4?! (it helps White) 10.f3 Bh5 11.Bg5! (with the idea Nf4) is better than 11.Ng3 since White want to take bishop with knight and bishop exchange Bg6-Bxd3 always favors White

I have quite a soft spot for the line in the Winawer
1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. ed ed 5. Bd3

Don't moan because it is a boring exchange variation - it's not that straightforward. After somethig like
5...Nc5 6. a3 Bxc3+ 7. bc Nf6 8. Ne2 0-0 9.0-0 Bg4!? (not that good but you'll be amazed how many people play it) 10. f3 Bh5 11. Ng3 Bg6 12. Bxg6 hg 13. f4 with f5 to come and a big attack.

There must be better replies then that? What are they?
