On Linux, it would not be all that difficult to do with the misc executable
support already integrated into most standard kernels. A simple shell
command such as the following would implement exactly what he's talking

I'm not sure how difficult/easy it would be to do on the other platforms
Wine runs on, but their method seems like overkill.
