I know very little about Wine's architecture, so forgive my ignorance.
What sort of efficiency overhead is there in doing the "wine driver"
approach? How about compatibility issues, e.g. with off-the-shelf
windows apps? This seems like a pretty big departure from the Windows
architecture that we are trying to clone, but if it enables a high
degree of code re-use, it may be worth it.
