That's fine, I was just saying what the process _looks_ like from outside.
That is to say, it's quite counterintuitive why you can not pick your
console, as in some cases, it works just fine... (ie. xterm -e "wine...").

So obviously we can't simply do:
	CreateProcess("xterm -e 'wine myprog.exe'")

but rather something like (in theory):
	p1 = CreateProcess("xterm")
	p2 = CreateProcess("myprog.exe'")
and somehow tell p2 about p1, so it can bind to it.
Now, this is the point, it seems, where you're saying
that we don't know stuff about p1, and I'm saying
that we've just created it ourselves, what is it that
we don't know? Or am I completely off?
