Not for pure Winelib apps of course. But there is huge advantage for
libwine apps. That is, Unix apps that just want to make use of some
Windows stuff. Like mplayer, or xmms, or what have you. These programs
are all multithreaded, and have to jump through big hoops to get to
Not mixing well with pthreads is a big no-no from the Principle of
Least Surprise point of view. I think we need to fix this for 1.0,
and would be real nice if we have a solution for 0.9.
In a perfect world, people would just be able to link -lwine to
make use of Win32 DLLs (or what have you).
