Window's cmd.exe run under Wine seems to do exactly what wcmd.exe
currently does in that it runs in its original terminal without
creating a new console window. Creating the console to host cmd.exe is
likely ouside the scope of cmd.exe.
Also, running cmd.exe from within an instance of cmd.exe in Windows
does not open a new console window--using an existing console, be it
unix or dos, seems to be the right thing to do.
