It's an intriguing idea, but I can't see how it could work for even slightly
complex cases. Take the COM calls. When the COM object is constructed, you
have absolutely no idea whether its methods are going to be called from a
Wine or from a PE environment.
The difference with thunking and cross-process COM calls is that in those
cases the caller knows he's doing something special. Not so for in-proc COM
calls, it's just a function call.
