Now hang on!  Mind, I won't spend any money to find out, but what is
lindows exactly?   Did they undo all the dll separatrion and make a
single monolithic static-linked executable, or is it
(stripped?) binaries lindows and linserver and a whole bunch of
(stripped) "elf-pe" dll's and lindows-lib executables?  If so, either
they will interoperate with Wine, or we can make them do so, even if we
have to add another entry to loadorder (builtin, so, lindows, native).

Ought to be easier to reverse engineer than native windows dlls, too.


Things are never so bad that they can't get worse.
