But the .exe variant is not enough.
You must have tbe .so in your path in order to be able
to execute it.
we could create, as it is done for dlls,  a
"C:\windows\programs" directory containing all the
applications symlinks/binaries.

Another approach is to define in a file what program
should be used natively or replaced by wine's one.
