Wine as Windows Terminal Server?

Thought for you all.....
Would it be possible to use Wine with a few extra bits to
make a kind of Windows Terminal Server?
So you login via VNC, and the Wine system prompts you for a
username and password, which it authenticates. It then loads
up a "desktop", with a fake "Start" menu, that you have
things similar to a normal start menu, but more appropriate
to a terminal server environment.
You then run your programs, but all the I/O is to/from the
remote client, and each session is independent of each
other, so there can be lots of different clients with
different permissions (so admin may have full access to all
of the drive, but users have various bits of their "hard
drive" read-only and things like that).
Would seem to make Wine very useful if that could be done.
Then VNC clients simply see a "Windows" desktop, and can do
what they want, but all the back-end is Wine and Linux.
